I. Name Game: Today is the last day to say everyone's name in the room. Congratulations to Aderinsola, Alexis, Anna, Brittany, Flora, Jomaire, and Kashema, Kelly, Laura, Loren, and Solange... who have done the deed! And now... on to the rest of yall.
III. Announcements & Etc...
- What should have been Book Choice #4 today: No Mercy Here: Gender, Punishment, and the Making of Jim Crow Modernity by Sarah Haley (will send around a copy)
- Next week will feature many reading choices. You can choose ONE book or 2-3 articles (in academic publishing for tenure, a book is often regarded as 2-3 articles depending on how “reputable” the journals are). We will use that same math here. Feel free to borrow one of Carmen's book and return at the end of the semester. Sophie & Tyese need to make sure they are covering different texts next week!
- There are guidelines now for your BIO Page assignment that is due on October 17. Please review this and come back next week with your questions and concerns.
- We will work in 1/2 hour chunks tonight since we have three presenters. Presenters should look for a 5-minute signal and then a 2-minute signal. We will end with a wrap-up: a) What are connections here between what we have heard? b) How would we address Carmen's current undergraduate students' questions (who are reading some of the same materials in a unit they just finished on feminisms of color)?
