Monte Schulz discusses his novel Metropolis, writing techniques, reading other writers, and influences on his writing. This is episode 505 of Teaching Learning Leading K12, an audio podcast. Monte Schulz received his M.A. in American Studies from University of California, Santa Barbara. He published his first novel, Down by the River, in 1990, and spent the next twelve years writing a novel about the Jazz Age. Monte is endlessly curious and well versed in world history and theology. He is fascinated by the style and use of innovative language, and can be caught engaging in provocative, philosophical conversations about big, far-reaching, imaginative, ideas and worldly perspectives. His father is the late cartoonist Charles M. Schulz. He lives in Santa Barbara, CA. A little about Metropolis Regency College senior Julian Brehm's uneventful student life is derailed when he falls for Nina Rinaldi, a beautiful young revolutionary engaged in political activism against the authoritarian regime that rules the country and wages a deceitful, distracting war. Julian's love for — and moral alliance to — Nina eventually leads him into a vast undercity beneath the metropolis. Then, east by train and into the war zone itself, where mortal danger in that expanding cemetery of millions threatens Julian's life; what he witnesses will alter how he perceives the Republic and ultimately his fate within it. Our focus today is on Monte, his writing, and his novel Metropolis… So much to learn... But wait... By the way, the new intro and outro music was written and performed by Brian K. Buffington.

"When we say survivor centered, what we mean is that the way forward, decisions, next steps, proceses, are based fundamentally in mindfulness for what will be just, and healthy, and good for the person who was most directly harmed, which in situations of abuse are the survivors." *CW: this episode is about advocacy for those who have experienced sexual abuse/assault--specifically within faith communitiesIn this episode of Called to be Bad I talk with Stephanie Krehbiel and Hilary Jerome Scarsella (see their updated bio's below) about their work at "Into Account" a survivor-based advocacy nonprofit that works to  bring justice to those who have been harmed--specifically by faith leaders or communities. This will be a two-part series. In this first part we discuss the work of Into Account and what exactly "survivor based advocacy work" means. In part two we go into what it is like to experience severe backlash for doing this work. Bio: Hilary Jerome Scarsella is Assistant Professor of Ethics and Director of Gender, Sexual, and Racial Justice Studies at Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School in Rochester, New York. Her teaching and research make use of intersectionally feminist, queer, trauma, and critical race theories to promote justice and flourishing in gendered, sexual, and racial terms. Hilary is also Director of Theological Integrity for Into Account, a national nonprofit that accompanies survivors working for justice and accountability in Christian contexts. Both her academic and her advocacy work focus on developing effective practices for stopping sexual violence and cultivating communities of sexual justice, care, and vitality. She has published widely both in academic and popular forums.Stephanie Krehbiel is the Executive Director and co-founder of Into Account. She works directly with survivors confronting churches and other religious institutions, accompanying them through reporting processes, investigations, media coverage, and public storytelling. As an advocate, she has worked with over a hundred individual survivors from a range of denominational backgrounds, from Catholic to Amish to nondenominational evangelicals. Her work has been covered in the New York Times, National Catholic Reporter, the Star-Tribune, and numerous smaller publications. Dr. Krehbiel holds a PhD in American Studies from University of Kansas with a concentration in Women, Gender, and Sexuality studies, and her work as an advocate began during ethnographic research on institutional violence against LGBTQ+ people in the Mennonite Church USA. As a collaborator with her Into Account colleagues, Dr. Krehbiel co-wrote a report based on the testimony of forty-four  survivors of sexual abuse, assault, and harassment perpetrated by Catholic liturgical composer David Haas, exposing coverups and complicity in the liturgical music industry as well as the Archidiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis and contributing to Haas's lifetime ban from the industry events he once used to target victims. Her posts for the Into Account organizational blog have covered topics such as Title IX regulation changes, the hidden dangers of organizational “lifestyle” policies, sexual abuse in collegiate sports, and the social consequences of institutional betrayal. She is a frequent guest speaker in university and seminary classrooms.Resources: Into Account Website: https://intoaccount.org/Our Stories Untold: https://www.ourstoriesuntold.com/Follow us for more ✨bad✨ content: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/calledtobebad_podcast/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/calledtobebadWebsite: https://calledtobebad.buzzsprout.com/Sponsor of this episode: https://www.arthumorsoul.com/Want to become part of the ✨baddie✨ community?

Today, The Two Mikes spoke with the noted economist Anne Bradley from the Fund for American Studies and George Mason University. Professor Bradley also is a professor of economics at the Institute of World Politics. Professor Bradley recommended that listeners read Frederick Hayek's book, The Road to Serfdom, for a well-written and understandable analysis of economic reality, a reality that appears to be entirely unknown by people like Clinton, Obama, and Biden and their economists. One of the beginnings of wisdom in economics is that the more money the government prints the higher inflation will be. Professor Bradley also noted that economists must have a sense of humility and be able to acknowledge that not all "good projects" can be afforded, and so must not be funded. Also key to a good economy is an educational system that not only teaches its students economic realities, but that they are independent actors in society and each person is solely responsible for making what they can of their lives. Neither government nor fellow citizens should be called on by individuals for things they believe to be theirs by right, instead of gaining them through personal effort and hard work. It is always and only up to the individual to identify his or her "sphere of usefulness" and then figure out how to attain employment that allows that usefulness to flourish.

Today, we kick off Episode 1 of Season 5 with the fabulous Dr. A.J. Bauer, an assistant professor in the Department of Journalism & Creative Media in the College of Communication and Information Sciences. AJ comes to us with a really fascinating background as his degrees are in American Studies but he worked professionally in journalism. He tells us about his own journey shifting from the right to the left and how that inspired much of the current work he is doing, including his book in progress--Making the Liberal Media: Conservative Press Criticisms and the Rise of the New Right. We cover all kinds of territory as we discuss the criticism that is inherently embedded within media and how that takes root in identity. AJ also tells us more about the nature of the work that he does--mostly archival research--and how that type of research is a little like playing a detective game. This kick-off episode is so much fun, and you may learn a little (or a lot) about the intricacies woven into narratives about liberal media bias.

Welcome to The Academic Life! In this episode you'll hear about: How both of today's guests became involved in higher education in prison. Why this work is personal to them. Funding and representation issues in higher education in prison. The complexities of supporting students who are incarcerated without supporting the carceral system. And a discussion of the Journal of Higher Education in Prison. Our guest is: Dr. Erin Corbett, who earned her doctorate from the University of Pennsylvania, where her dissertation examined the relationship between educational attainment level and post-release employment outcomes for formerly incarcerated people in Connecticut. While pursuing her doctorate, Erin launched a nonprofit that provides not-for-credit, postsecondary level courses in three correctional facilities in Connecticut. She has also taught in correctional facilities in Rhode Island with College Unbound, and guest lectured to incarcerated students in the Iowa through the University of Iowa Liberal Arts Beyond Bars (UI LABB) program. Erin was the Assistant Director for Applied Research at the Institute for Higher Education Policy focusing on federal policy related to the intersection of higher education policy and policy related to educational access for justice-impacted people; and she was the Director of Policy at the Katal Center for Health, Equity, and Justice before transitioning to working with SCEA full time and consulting. Our guest is: Dr. Breea Willingham, incoming Associate Professor of Criminology at UNC Wilmington. Dr. Willingham earned her Ph.D. in American Studies from the State University of New York at Buffalo. As an interdisciplinary scholar, Dr. Willingham's research examines the intersections of race, gender, higher education, and the injustice system. She is particularly interested in examining Black women's pathways to incarceration, their experiences with higher education in prison, and providing a platform for Black women impacted by the injustice system to tell their stories. Influenced by her experiences as a sister and aunt of two men serving life sentences, Dr. Willingham's research also focuses on the societal ramifications of mass incarceration, especially its impact on families. Her work on incarcerated fathers and their children, Black women's prison narratives, teaching in women's prisons, and Black women and police violence has been published in academic journals and edited collections. In 2020, Dr. Willingham was appointed Managing Editor of the Journal for Higher Education in Prison, a peer-reviewed journal that publishes on the topics and issues in higher education in prison.

What does it mean to be a successful young person? Education cost has been skyrocketing for years across the country.

How can we redefine student success and improve higher education so student swill no longer have to go bankrupt for a college degree? Join us as San Francisco State University President Lynn Mahoney discusses these hard and complex questions about higher education in the 21st century.

She has spent her life working in education including the Department of Education. She is committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion in all facets of work and life. Dr. Chism has a PhD in American Studies.Episode NotesDr. Monique Chism shares the fascinating history of the Smithsonian Institute and why she considers it to be one of the most accessible and relevant museums in the country. She talks about her role as the Undersecretary of Education at the Museum - what she does, the programming she is involved in, some of the fascinating people she gets to meet (she had just Mae Jemison the night before our interview). We talk about the intersection of art an science (which is at the core of the Smithsonian's history) and the importance of both.The Smithsonian Institution is made up of 60 museums - not all of them are located in the Washington DC area. It is the largest museum complex in the world. Dr. Chism explains about the educational programming the Smithsonian has (and there is a lot - almost all free!!) and their goal of bringing the Smithsonian to every American. There's so much great work and programming going on at the Smithsonian, both on site and virtually! (So, here's a side note...I love the Smithsonian - I try to visit at least one museum everytime I'm in DC. I thought I knew a lot about it, but I have apparently just scratched the surface. I learned so much about the museum and the institute both by meeting Dr. Chism in person at the Smithsonian Castle where she works - I rarely have gotten to meet my guests in person and through our conversation)Music used in the podcast: Higher Up, Silverman Sound StudioAcronyms, Definitions, and Fact CheckSmithsonian Museums, Galleries, and ZooSmithsonian Institution Research CentersIF/Then CollectionMae Carol Jemison is an American engineer, physician, and former NASA astronaut.

(Wikipedia)The space shuttle Discovery is the centerpiece of the James S. McDonnell Space Hangar at the National Air and Space Museum's Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, Va.“The Smithsonian Institution”―When most people hear the name, museums, scientific research, even Dorothy's ruby slippers and the Wright brothers' plane come to mind. But many don't know how, or for that matter, who created the Smithsonian. The Institution is now 169 years old, but its true beginning happened 250 years ago with the birth of a seemingly ill-fated boy named James Smithson. Smithson (c. 1765–1829), the founding donor of the Smithsonian, was an English chemist and mineralogist. He was the illegitimate son of Hugh Smithson, the first Duke of Northumberland, and the wealthy widow Elizabeth Hungerford Keate Macie. His exact birthday remains a mystery because he was born secretly in Paris, where his mother had gone to hide her pregnancy. He was born James Lewis Macie, but in 1801, after his parents died, he took his father's last name of Smithson. Toward the end of his life, under a clause in his will, he left his fortune to the United States. It was to be used to found “an establishment for the increase and diffusion of knowledge…” in Washington, D.C. and it was to be named the Smithsonian Institution.
