Monday, February 8 - Inclusion, Cultural Fluency & Global Citizenship: mid-year gathering and learning community update
Contributed by Rachel Gould on 02/07/2016
Last September, the Symposium on Inclusion, Cultural Fluency, Global Citizenship launched a year-long series of conversations about helping the College to better prepare its students, faculty, and staff for an increasingly diverse socio-economic environment. Discussions have focused on how we can become more inclusive in all areas, more supportive of cultural fluency among our students and employees, and more focused on preparing our students for the “responsibilities of citizenship and service in the global community”. Following the September Symposium, several Learning Communities formed around these topics, and have been meeting since.
On Monday, February 8, from 3:00-5:00 p.m., in the Clark Lounge, we will be holding a mid-year gathering of those who participated in the Inclusion, Cultural Fluency & Global Citizenship Learning Communities, as well as those who did not have the opportunity to do so but are interested in becoming a part of these conversations.

Ellie Fulmer, Assistant Professor of Education, recently published an article in Dragon Lode, the children’s literature journal of the International Literacy Association. The piece, titled, “Swimming with Flotsam: Peri-Postmodernism and the Postmodern Picturebook” explores a new subgenre of postmodern children’s literature, what she calls, “peri-postmodernism.” The article centers on the chief tenets of this subgenre, as explored through the responses of early adolescents, using David Wiesner’s award-winning text Flotsam (2006) as a case study.
