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.
