This concert presents the musical response of Medieval European composers such as Machaut, Landini, and Dufay alongside readings and songs from West Africa.

The Co-Parents’ Handbook: Book Talk and Presentation from the Authors
Dec 1 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Join us for a talk with Karen Bonnell and Kristen Little, authors of the book “The Co-Parents’ Handbook: Raising Well-Adjusted, Resilient, and Resourceful Kids in a Two-Home Family from Little Ones to Young Adults.” This is a great opportunity for anyone in the CFT program, or for anyone who wants to know more about the skills that go into successful co-parenting!

When it comes to a child’s sense of family, what divorce breaks apart, solid co-parenting rebuilds. With a tested “here’s how” approach, The Co-Parents’ Handbook helps parents confidently take on the challenges of raising children in two homes.

Addressing parents’ questions about the emotional impact of separation, conflict, grief and recovery, the authors skillfully provide a road map for all members of the family to safely navigate through separation/divorce and beyond. Parents discover through practical guidance how to move from angry/hurt partners to constructive, successful co-parents.

We have been approached by students, staff and faculty who want to help the people and countries of West Africa presently undergoing a devastating Ebola crisis. Several of you are either from or have worked in the region, and we add our voices to yours in calling for action and support on behalf of our global neighbors and family. They are surely part of our Beloved Community after all.

If you are moved by the immense challenges and inspiring heroism of those in the midst of the crisis, we ask you to donate to Ebola Relief in West Africa.

Antioch has organized an AUS African Assistance Project. Through this project, we intend to act as a convener and to support networking of information and resource for critical health and other relief efforts.

On Wednesday, December 3, 2014, from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm, Antioch will be hosting an education/fundraiser event in room 100. This is a free educational event. You may attend and learn about the crisis without donating. If you wish to be involved immediately:

GJSFO: Gwen Jones Student Feminist Organization @ Room 121
Dec 4 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
GJSFO: Gwen Jones Student Feminist Organization @ Room 121

Mission Statement: We explore feminism in a multicultural context.  We seek to understand ways that feminism can positively influence our own identities and empower members of our community.

Long Term Plans:

This group will meet bi-monthly and discuss feminist topics focused by short readings (which we plan to draw from a syllabus Gwen Jones created for an advanced feminism class she used to teach).  Students do not need to complete the readings to attend the meetings and participate in the discussions. Meetings should last between 1-2 hours depending on the size of the group and the intensity of the discussion.

We are also planning to bring in high profile feminist speakers once a quarter (hopefully starting with Gwen Jones).  Other opportunities may include creating an Antioch feminist blog, writing publishable articles, and engaging in community outreach.  But these activities will be totally optional.  Students will be able to participate in whatever way works for them.
