Deadline: Wed, Aug 15, 2018
Description: We are seeking CUNY participants and artists for this free 8-week interdisciplinary workshop culminating in a publication and public event “The Impact of Listening and Being Heard: Oral History, Archives, & Advocacy,” in which we will use a lens of radical empathy to deepen our oral history practice. The workshop will be led by Sady Sullivan during the 2018 Fall semester at the Graduate Center, CUNY. With our eyes on the prize of a more equitable and peaceful future, we will focus on oral history as a tool for exploring the dynamic relationships of identity, voice, embodied knowledge, belonging, and becoming. This workshop will be useful to people at all levels of experience with oral history who want to reflect on self-care, care for our narrators/interviewees, and the role that sharing life histories plays in caring for our future. Through shared experiences such as Deep Listening (both Buddhist and in the spirit of Pauline Oliveros) and sound therapy exercises, we will strengthen our intuitive listening skills and explore collective (un)consciousness.

This interdisciplinary and transregional workshop explores slavery, past and present from the perspective of authorship, textuality and literary culture.
Slavery is often portrayed as shrouded in silence due to the simple fact that the number of texts and accounts written by enslaved people is very limited, especially when compared to the vast amounts of documentation produced by the colonial powers. As recent scholarship has shown, however, enslaved people were not silent—silence is rather an effect created by the privileging of some forms of writing and as a result certain voices and viewpoints over others.

CALL FOR PAPERS
In 1952, in his essay on the Goethian idea of Weltliteratur, Erich Auerbach stated that “our philological home is the earth: it can no longer be the nation. The most priceless and indispensable part of a philologist’s heritage is still his own nation’s culture and language. Only when he is first separated from this heritage, however, and then transcends it does it become truly effective.” The essay ends with the idea that the spirit [Geist] is not national, and that the one who thinks of the world entirely as a place of exile can “earn a proper love of the world.” Auerbach’s crowning Mimesis was, of course, written from Istanbul, while he was in exile during the second World War. A masterpiece within our discipline of Comparative Literature, Mimesis is a critical example of how displacement might be that which enables the very act of comparison itself.

Richard Montauk, author of How to Get Into the Top MBA Programs and noted career consultant, will lead a resume and cover letter writing session designed to help graduate students and alumni be strategic in their pursuit of employment in the non-profit or for-profit world. Richard will also offer follow up 30-minute career advising sessions on Thursday, July 12. To sign up for an advising session, you can follow the instructions at this link.

Writing a strong resume is not merely a matter of converting a CV into a resume. Nor is it simply a matter of choosing between chronological, functional, or combination format–or deciding between one and multi-page formats. The advent of applicant tracking systems (ATS, in the jargon) requires a completely different approach to resume-writing for many jobs. We’ll explore each of these formats–when to use which, and how to get the most out of whichever one you choose. Finally, we’ll talk about cover letters and how to write one that does what it’s supposed to do–give an employer a sense of how you would do the job.
Please register using our sign-up form.
