About this Event
That’s right, this session calls you to rest. Inspired by the work of Tricia Hersey, the Nap Bishop, and her initiative, the Nap Ministry, assistant professor of curriculum & teaching, M’Balia Thomas, will lead a discussion about her decision to consciously slow down and deepen her research and teaching, and what the art of reorienting from a model of productivity has made possible. Following, attendees are invited to participate in a community rest-in.
Hosted by The Commons, the IPSR Center for Compassionate and Sustainable Communities, the Spencer Museum of Art, and the Emily Taylor Center for Women & Gender Equity; with support from the Center for Faculty Development and Mentoring, the Center for Teaching Excellence, and the Environmental Studies Program.
