Kimberly Juanita Brown is the Associate Professor of English and Creative Writing at Dartmouth. Her research and teaching gather at the intersection of African American/African diaspora literature and visual culture studies. In particular, she is interested in the relationship between visuality and black subjectivity. Her first book, The Repeating Body: Slavery's Visual Resonance in the Contemporary (Duke University Press, 2015) examines slavery's profound ocular construction and the presence and absence of seeing in relation to the plantation space. She is currently at work on her second book, tentatively titled "Mortevivum: Photography and the Politics of the Visual." This project examines images of the dead in the New York Times in 1994 from four overlapping geographies: South Africa, Rwanda, Sudan and Haiti. "Mortevivum" explores the relationship between photography and histories of antiblackness on the cusp of the twenty-first century.

With continued change and complexity, unstructured time is essential to both our wellbeing and performance. Join Allison Holzer D'00, Co-CEO & Chief Innovation Officer of InspireCorps, to redefine how we think of inspiration as sustainable and unpack the powerful strategy of unstructured time. Drawing from original research, Allison will go deeper on her recent TEDxDartmouth talk, "Unpack the power of inspiration to shape your future" and guide participants to new and actionable insights.
The neuroscience research backs this strategy and speaks to the benefits of unstructured time for thinking in an ever-distracted, ever-changing and multi-tasking world.Yet, many people still feel uncomfortable prioritizing it-- even guilty for taking time that doesn't have immediate productivity or concrete results attached to it.
Drawing from her experience in leadership development and her knowledge in the fields of emotional intelligence and positive psychology, Allison will guide participants through a process to activate this powerful strategy to drive better performance and wellbeing. join us for an interactive session that will include new ideas, actionable resources, lively discussion and powerful breakouts.

You know racism is real, and you want to end it, but how?
Join us Friday October 29 to learn how.
This is not a talk of antiracist theory but antiracist tactics--tactics that anyone, of any race, can use to strike a blow against injustice. Antiracism is not about what we feel but what we do, and there are specific techniques we can use to create a just world.
Antiracist strategies are skills that can be learned just as we learn skills for public speaking or hitting a baseball. In this talk, you-- whether a person of color or white-- will find a playbook for leading your workplace, organization or community through transformative change in the wake of an act of explicit racism. You'll learn to play antiracist rhetorical chess, and to anticipate and effectively respond to the discursive moves of people who don't understand bigotry, aren't aware of it, are in denial of it, or even actively uphold it-- so that you can advance justice goals. You'll get a blueprint on how to dismantle systemic racism community by community, workplace by workplace, organization by organization-- and examples of what not to do.
The talk is aimed at people who are conscious of the reality of racism and want to end it but may not know how. The talk clearly shows how anyone can make an effective, significant, and measurable impact on racism through strategic action.
FRIDAY, Oct 29 at 10AM Pacific/11AM MTN/12PM Central/1PM Eastern
