Gender Talk – Rest is Resistance: Our divine right to rest
1:00 pm EST
What would it be like to live in a well-rest world? Engage with the Rest is Resistance framework, rooted in Black liberation, womanist theology, spirituality, and a politics of refusal. Tricia Hersey’s talk will explore the tenets of The Nap Ministry and uplift the following questions: How can we be more human when capitalism attempts to degrade our divinity by viewing our bodies as mere machines? How can we resist the constant pull of grind culture in our lives? How do we cooperate to craft a world in which all bodies can thrive? How do we rest in a culture that glorifies urgency and busyness? How do we dream ourselves free?
Lunch, catered by Sodexo, will be served. We extend our gratitude to our gracious co-sponsors, the Department of Studies in Religion and Spirituality.
