Global Classroom Book Club | Winter 2021
Seattle, WA, USA
This is a virtual program, instructions on how to join this meeting will be sent the day before the event.
To kick off the new year, Global Classroom is thrilled to revisit Dr. Anu Taranath’s timely and compelling book, Beyond Guilt Trips: Mindful Travel in an Unequal World. A Finalist for three book awards and featured in YES!, Bitch, and AFAR Magazines, Beyond Guilt Trips delves into issues related to identity, social justice, and cross-cultural perspectives through the lens of travel and tourism.
Although we are unable to travel due to the global pandemic, the positive side is that we have the time to further educate ourselves on how we can be more mindful of the cultures, languages, and lived experiences of those we will be interacting with as the world begins to open back up. Mindful Magazine was, "enlivened by [Dr, Anu's] travel stories-- at once tense, challenging, and brightly beautiful -- Taranath's book may become required reading for those who wander, and those who want to." Global Classroom is humbled to be working with Dr. Anu Taranath again, as we launch our Winter 2021 book club, and look forward to providing safe space for our educators to explore themes that are currently at the forefront of global discourse.
Join the World Affairs Council for an engaging discussion.
