“I’m a girl, and I’m plural”: Emergency meditations on pedagogy, mindfulness, layered identities, and libraries


“I meet others with the life I’ve lived, not just with my questions.” - Krista Tippett. While working amidst a global pandemic, many of us have been inviting students, researchers, and colleagues into our homes for meetings, classes, and consultations. At times, we have likely felt a sense of connection and compassion, in part because we have become keenly aware that we are all suffering.
