research interests

how many people out there actually have a page or an attachment to their dossier that explains their research interests? do you differentiate those from your current projects? I'm in one of those explaining modes, I guess; trying to show how my work, teaching, research is related or not. I think it is of course but then I've watched far too many episodes of connections and connections2 to not see it as such;) besides I told my department chair that I'd give him a copy of my current projects and research interests.
