Last EXCITE Session: Evernote in the Classroom

The Libraries are pleased to announce the last EXCITE presentation of the semester as Professor Welling Hall offers a session titled "Evernote in the Classroom" on Thursday, April 17, at Noon in Lilly Library. The Libraries' faculty appreciates everyone who has taken the time to attend or present an EXCITE session this semester!


Lose Hate, Not Weight

Virgie Tovar will present a lecture on Wednesday, April 16, at 7:30 p.m., in Loose Lecture Hall. As the war on obesity mounts and bodies become a source of public scrutiny, fat bodies and body positive politics become a site of resistance against state-sanctioned ideas of health. The idea of liberation — losing hate — becomes a means to disrupt fatphobia and re-envision the meaning of food, bodies and politics. In this lecture, Virgie Tovar, editor of "Hot & Heavy: Fierce Fat Girls on Life, Love and Fashion" (Seal Press, 2012), engages with fashion, fierceness and freedom with an eye to the intersections of race, gender and class. Tovar converses with academic theory, public performance and social media to unveil the centering of self love and the refusal to diet as radical acts of autonomy in a culture that seeks to enforce uniformity. This event is co-hosted by the Womyn's Center, Spectrum, BLUE and SOC.


My Body is Sexy: Writing Lab

There will be a workshop led by Virgie Tovar, fat activist, sexologist and author, on Wednesday, April 16, at 4:30 p.m., in The Womyn's Center.

It will begin by discussing the state of sex education and erotic material, how internalized body attitudes affect our sexuality, pleasure and sexual decision making, and go over sexual negotiation tools. Then the workshop will move into the writing, which asks participants to center their current body and selves in a story they write. This workshop is open-gender. Cookies and coffee will be provided.

Take the HERI Faculty Survey

The College's 2010-11 HERI Faculty Survey found that 46% of Earlham teaching faculty spend 17 or more hours per week in preparation for teaching compared to 30% of the comparison group. In addition, “autonomy and independence” was the aspect of the job found most satisfactory by 93% of Earlham administrative faculty. How have these findings changed during the past three years? Help us find out by taking the HERI Faculty Survey. A unique link to the survey has been sent to each faculty member through an April 15 email reminder. Both teaching and administrative faculty are invited to participate. Contact Polly Albright at <albripo@earlham.edu> with further questions.
