Faculty Research Lunch: Nikki Dragone: Mary Kathryn Nagle’s plays as sites of activism for the reclamation and resurgence of native sovereignty

Please join WGRC and WGSS for February's Faculty Research Lunch on February 20th, in Stern 102, 12-1pm.

In many Native communities, performance-based storytelling may be understood as socio-political acts of resurgence because it functions as a site of activism and knowledge-production about issues of. In particular, Cherokee lawyer and playwright, Mary Katheryn Nagle’s plays, Sliver of a Full Moon and Sovereignty, function as sites of public knowledge-making about the systemic nature and colonial roots of gendered violence against Native women, and as sites of activism calling for the reclamation of full sovereign jurisdiction over crimes committed within the boundaries of native nations’ lands.

Lunch is provided and RSVP is requested at wgrc@dickinson.edu

Co-sponsored by the Women’s and Gender Resource Center and the Department of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies

General Announcements

Invitation to ALL Campus Community Members to Join the Intercultural Competency Task Force (ICCTF)

Dickinson is a diverse community that values the lived experiences of its members and the expression of a variety of perspectives. We recognize that difference and diversity enrich community -- but can also divide. The intercultural competency initiative addresses this challenge. We define intercultural competence as the ability for community members to engage with each other across cultural difference in order to deepen learning and build mutual understanding and community.

As previously announced, President Margee Ensign has launched an intercultural competency task force. To meet our goal that the task force represent all parts of campus to help in this important work, we are seeking additional task force members. If you are interested in helping to shape this initiative and in assisting our campus in meeting the demands of this globally diverse community, please contact Samantha Brandauer or Brenda Bretz, co-chairs of the task force, by emailing icctf@dicknson.edu on or before February 5, 2018. If you are interested in the initiative, but do not want to serve on the task force (maybe by participating in a subcommittee), please let Brenda or Sam know as well.

The meetings this semester are from 3-4 on Friday February 9, March 2nd and April 6th.

To view current the current goals and membership, please visit the ICCTF website: http://www.dickinson.edu/homepage/1130/intercultural_competency

Book Discussion - Dear Ijeawele, or A Feminist Manifesto in Fifteen Suggestions by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Presented by the President's Commission on Women, Gender and Sexuality & Professional Development

April 27, 2018
Noon – 1:15 PM
HUB, side room 204-205

A few years ago, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie received a letter from a dear friend from childhood, asking her how to raise her baby girl as a feminist. Dear Ijeawele is Adichie's letter of response.
Here are fifteen invaluable suggestions--compelling, direct, wryly funny, and perceptive--for how to empower a daughter to become a strong, independent woman. From encouraging her to choose a helicopter, and not only a doll, as a toy if she so desires; having open conversations with her about clothes, makeup, and sexuality; debunking the myth that women are somehow biologically arranged to be in the kitchen making dinner, and that men can "allow" women to have full careers, Dear Ijeawele goes right to the heart of sexual politics in the twenty-first century. It will start a new and urgently needed conversation about what it really means to be a woman today.
A copy of the book will be ordered for employees registered prior to Wednesday, February 28, 2018.

To register please select the Totara icon in the Gateway. Once in Totara, select “Find Learning” on the top ribbon and then select courses from the drop down list. Search for “Book Discussions”. Click on the course and then click on “Enroll Me” to enroll. After enrolling, scroll down to the appropriate book discussion topic, click "view all events" and click “sign-up” on the far right side.
