Where is the present understanding of the field?

When I was studying, OO still was not an academic subject, but I have readen recent college notes and they use exactly the same messy terminology as the trade media.

In some universities I know, OO is a rather new subject, it is teached by the youngest teachers, and the sources they used to make the course notes were the trade media publications :(

Could you post references for serious OO definitions?
