SOLD OUT: Educator Summer Book Club: Beyond Guilt Trips: Mindful Travel in an Unequal World -Virtual Program
August 5th, 2020 2:00PM -4:00PM
This is a virtual program, instructions on how to join this meeting will be sent the day before the event.
Have you wondered how to engage in mindful travel both locally and globally? How might we travel across differences in race, culture, wealth and access with more grace, reflection and accountability? As teachers, what are ways to inspire our students to actively participate in thoughtful travel as local and global citizens?
Join us for our summer book club featuring Anu Taranath’s timely and compelling book, Beyond Guilt Trips: Mindful Travel in an Unequal World. A Finalist for three book awards and featured in YES!, Bitch and AFAR Magazines, Mindful Magazine has also written "Enlivened by her travel stories-- at once tense, challenging, and brightly beautiful -- Taranath's book may become required reading for those who wander, and those who want to."
Join us as we delve into issues related to identity, social justice, and cross-cultural perspectives.
Participants will discuss these themes with Dr. Anu, a UW professor and racial equity facilitator. Rethinking how we engage in an unequal world both in our own communities and across the globe, Dr. Anu provides the tools and context for developing ethical and thoughtful approaches to mindful travel.
This program is co-sponsored by the Center for Global Studies at the University of Washington and the World Affairs Council's Global Classroom.
Teachers will receive resources to accompany the themes discussed in the book, 4 free clock hours, and a copy of the book.
Space is limited.
