Workshop | Exploring the Power of Mindfulness (online)


ERM Mindfulness is an online program designed with positive psychology insights and neuroscience research to help participants to experience the present moment with increased acceptance, nurturing curiosity and promoting collaboration. Our minds have a natural tendency to wander. Now with the challenges that come from increased time spent at home and away from in-person activities, we have an opportunity to develop a greater sense of wellbeing and interconnectedness by training our minds to become more aware and less judgmental. By cultivating awareness of emotions while reinforcing positive values and goals, students will have an opportunity to practice mindful listening and meditation in 3 sections: Clarity: focused attention and open monitoring guided meditations Compassion: active listening and self-compassion for collaboration Creativity: leadership communication and visualization With: Rajiah Williams Leong Thursdays, January 27-April 7, 2022

Lecture | Creating a New Sector to Support Public-Private-Civic Partnerships (online)


Over the past decade research shows that cross-sector partnerships are beginning to be employed by some governments to assist in addressing public problems that they cannot successfully address alone. However, forming effective partnerships and working across sectors is hardly easy. Many opportunities to employ them are never realized because there is no framework to support them. Despite their promise, these kinds of partnerships are complex undertakings, getting them off the ground and sustaining them without a supportive infrastructure has proven difficult. We believe a new sector is needed that can operate at state and local levels to provide platforms for establishing partnerships involving the public, private and civic sectors that can bring about innovative solutions to economic, environmental, and social problems that cannot be resolved by government acting alone. Creating this new sector would go far to advancing the use of cross-sector partnerships to address our most pressing issues.

Author Reading | Home/Land: A Memoir of Departure and Return (online)


In a deft mix of memoir and reportage, drawing on literature and art, recent and ancient history, and the experience of encounters with individuals, environments, and landscapes in New York City and in England, Rebecca Mead artfully explores themes of identity, nationality, and inheritance. She recounts her time in the coastal town of Weymouth, where she grew up; her dizzying first years in New York where she broke into journalism; the rich process of establishing a new home for her dual-national son in London. Along the way, she gradually reckons with the complex legacy of her parents. Home/Land is a stirring inquiry into how to be present where we are, while never forgetting where we have been.

Discussion | On Protesting Monuments (online)


A conversation with Erin Thompson, professor of art crime at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice and author of Smashing Statues. An urgent and fractious national debate over public monuments has erupted in America. Some people risk imprisonment to tear down long-ignored hunks of marble; others form armed patrols to defend them. Why do we care so much about statues? And who gets to decide which ones should stay up and which should come down?

Author Reading | Dilla Time: Biography of an Influential Musician (online)


When J Dilla, aka Jay Dee aka James deWitt Yancey died in 2006 at the age of 32, his work with the likes of the Pharcyde, Slum Village, Common, D’Angelo, and the Roots had left behind a legacy—and a legend—that would influence countless musicians across multiple genres to this day. Culled from more than 150 interviews with family, friends, partners, and celebrity collaborators, Dan Charnas’ Dilla Time chronicles Yancey’s life from his gifted childhood in Detroit to his rise as a Grammy-nominated hip-hop producer, to the rare blood disease that caused his premature death. It places his story within the greater story of Black culture in America and examines what happens when human and machine times are synthesized into something new.
