Sober Curious

September 23 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Are you in recovery? Are you interested in being sober? Do you want to meet people who also do not want to drink? Recovery communities gather on campuses all across the country. Some larger universities have recovery houses, sober dorm floors, and other activities.  There is a new weekly, AA-inspired meeting happening in the Emerson community!
All Emerson community members (students, staff and faculty) are welcome, both those with long-term sobriety, and interested in learning more about being sober, living a sober lifestyle or want to talk more about stopping drinking.
It is modeled on AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) with readings from AA literature followed by one hour of open discussion.  
Every WEDNESDAY at 4pm- Zoom:
Meeting ID: 991 7952 2462
Passcode: 622051

Critical Perspectives of Race & Gender: Towards a More Sustainable Future

September 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Campus on the Common LIVE title image

Campus on the Common LIVE, Episode 1

Special Guests:

Mary Anne Taylor, Assistant Professor of Communication Studies

Deion Hawkins, Assistant Professor of Communication Studies

In this tandem interactive webinar, Drs. Mary Anne Taylor and Deion Hawkins will draw from their research areas of gender, race, and sexuality studies to engage students in thinking about politics, sports, and health communication through a critical cultural lens. When thinking about the United Nations’ sustainable development goals designed to address gender and racial inequalities, we will present case studies aimed at combating marginality for underrepresented groups in global policy and communication. Hawkins and Taylor will make brief lecture remarks, followed by an open and interactive dialogue with students and guests. Together, we will push against normative and reductive narratives that serve to uphold status quo power dynamics. Finally, we will advance a call to action for a more politically and socially just climate of advocacy.

About Campus on the Common LIVE

In 2020, we are thrilled to introduce the online event series, Campus on the Common LIVE. Like the podcast of the same name, this production will showcase the ideas and insights of the Emerson community, with the added bonus of a live and interactive audience. Campus on the Common LIVE offers participants the chance to learn from faculty and professional experts and each other, no matter where they are.

During each session, members of the Emerson community can enjoy a deeper look into the journeys, motivations, and values of an invited speaker who will spend about 15-20 minutes addressing the topic “What Matters to Me and Why,” and then the floor is opened to informal dialogue for the remainder of the hour.
This informal lunchtime gathering about the motivations and passions of each guest speaker also invites each of us to reflect on our own motivations, passions, and why we do what we do.
