Planning for Sharing
"What does it mean to only have these conversations in the classroom?"
"From an activism perspective – how do we share this out? Aren't we obligated to? What is the point of being here if we're not going to share it?"
"In order to start a conversation we need to know what people already think."
Already structures within the Bi-Co which are having these conversations, but maybe we can reach out and make connections.
A couple thoughts:
1. Aware in Bi-Co and Bryn Mawr of the over-intensity of academics. Want to go to syllabus to lift something out and replace it with this kind of a project. (so don't think this is going to be a new huge pile-on of work).
2. Imagine picking up on lunch idea (Emily), picking up on this conversation for folks in the class to make plans? or invite others to have these conversations? Not suggesting lunch as requirement, but would that be a way to continue thinking about this? (within the class) Are we bringing others in to the lunch table or is it just us? "My thought was to set a couple of lunch times to plan for our class to plan to do something." Does bringing friends also accomplish the goals of continuing/fostering outside conversations?
Think between now and Thursday about what we want. Let it percolate. You're invited to post suggestions here.
