I'm Pam Newman.
I am awesome every day & you are too.
Follow my butt on Twitter!
I'm a writer of aricles, poems & songs. Here's some cool stuff I wrote.
Yesterday, I got a bunch of Klout perks in the mail. I got like 6 packs of strawberry tic tacs & a FULL SIZED bottle of Carol’s Daughter monoi oil.
I’m really pumped about the Monoi Oil because I have been wanting to try it and it is not cheap… ($30 on the Carol’s Daughter website) It smells really nice!!
(If you’re well enough networked on the internets, Klout sends you free stuff… disclaimer: Klout pays me nothing for trying these things or telling y’all about it, but hey who doesn’t like free stuff??)
I’m going to offer a few spaces (about 10) to folks in NYC (or those who are committed to attending) and in the community to join my college class I’m teaching this summer. All people are welcome, you do not have to identify as a womyn/woman, a POC, or “radical” however this class WILL CENTER US, so if you are needing racism 101 etc. this is NOT the class for you.
Here’s what I’m offering for FREE:
1. Join class each day on campus (you’ll have to cover your own transportation)
2. Email of all readings, syllabi, and links to readings and films
3. Letter of recommendation stating the student has taken the course with me and what grade they earned on official letterhead.
4. In person and virtual contact with me to discuss topics in class, themes, as well as professional and personal growth, exploration, development.
6. A community of practice with amazing intellectuals like YOU.
Here’s what is required:
1. Ability to join a majority of the classes in person (we meet 3x a week for about 3 hours for 4 weeks. That’s 12 classes so you’ll have to commit to at least 10 classes. Classes meet Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday 9am-12pm begins July 18, 2012)
2. Ability to get to the campus and is accessible! (I will give instructions to folks who are interested, it is in the west Bronx and MTA accessible via subway and bus)
3. Ability to commit to doing the readings, assignments (group facilitation, participation) and exams (oral midterm, final paper). Basically participate as though you are paying for the course and take it seriously as the students who are.
This course is a sociology course taught by me, a sexologist, educator, radical woman of Color, co-founder of The LatiNegr@s Project. The focus is on the way women of Color have created, challenged, and established space for our voices to be heard, to theorize, to build community and to heal. We will be discussing topics that range from racism sexism, colorism, xenophobia, parenting, ableism, citizenship, transmisogyny, colonization, media making, archiving and preserving the work and voices of WOC (to name a few!). Guest speakers include @blackamazon, @larepublicadedetroit, @mamitamala @superhussy.
If you are interested please send me a note. I will also send the syllabus to folks interested though out of state/country via email to those who request it via a note to me.
This course takes place at a college/institute for higher education. Although the teaching methods I employ are not always considered “traditional” it is important to understand there are some “traditional” forms of assessment I am required to do to maintain employment. Some readings will be higher than an 10th grade reading level and the font on some of the PDF are 12 point font (you may be able to increase size). Some films do not have transcripts.
All you lucky dames in New York should seize this opportunity!
