Global Classroom Book Club for Educators: Beyond Guilt...
January 13, 2021 4:00 pm – 6:00PM. Register here!
To kick off the new year, The UW Center for Global Studies and the The World Affairs Council’s Global Classroom are thrilled to revisit Dr. 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, Beyond Guilt Trips delves into issues related to identity, social justice, and cross-cultural perspectives through the lens of travel and tourism.
Although we are unable to travel due to the global pandemic, the positive side is that we have the time to further educate ourselves on how we can be more mindful of the cultures, languages, and lived experiences of those we will be interacting with as the world begins to open back up.
Mindful Magazine was “enlivened by [Dr, Anu’s] 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.”
Participants will discuss issues surrounding identity, social justice, and cross-cultural perspectives 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 will provide the tools and context for developing ethical and thoughtful approaches to mindful travel.
Please note: this is a virtual program. Instructions on how to join this meeting will be sent the day before the event.
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.
This program is co-sponsored by the Center for Global Studies at the University of Washington and the World Affairs Council’s Global Classroom.
