Her work also considers the challenges and possibilities of political education in elementary classrooms and the extent to which learning environments nourish children's imaginative spirits. Davis has collaborated with museums, makerspaces, nonprofit youth-serving organizations and schools to design curriculum and conduct professional development workshops on topics related to creativity, science learning and the enactment of critical pedagogies. She is a recipient of the NAEd/Spencer Postdoctoral Fellowship, AERA-Division G Distinguished Dissertation and Dimond Dissertation awards. Her work has been disseminated in academic journals such as Cognition & Instruction and via public outlets such as Michigan Talk Radio and Youth Today.

One of the many things that I am grateful for when it comes to this podcast is the platform it has become for discussing mental health. Sarah Fay (PhD, MFA) is an activist and author of PATHOLOGICAL: The True Story of Six Misdiagnoses. Her book calls for a new conversation about mental health diagnosis based on rigorous transparency. With exquisite detail and a precise presentation of facts, she digs up her own life at the root to finally ask, Is a diagnosis a lifeline or a self-fulfilling prophecy? We talk about pill shaming, over-identifying with a diagnosis, the possibility of recovering from a mental illness, and more. She writes for many publications, including The New York Times, The Atlantic, Time, and The Paris Review. Currently, Sarah is on the faculty at Northwestern University and the founder of Pathological: The Movement.       This episode is brought to you by WHOOP and Travelzoo.   Travelzoo inspires members to get out and travel to destinations that might not be top of mind.

The history of the Palestine War does not only concern military history. It also involves social, humanitarian and religious history, as in the case of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Jerusalem. A Liminal Church: Refugees, Conversions and the Latin Diocese of Jerusalem, 1946–1956 (Brill, 2020) offers a complex narrative of the Latin patriarchal diocese, commonly portrayed as monolithically aligned with anti-Zionist and anti-Muslim positions during the “long” year of 1948. Making use of largely unpublished archives in the Middle East, Europe and the United States, including the recently released Pius XII papers, Maria Chiara Rioli depicts a church engaged in multiple and sometimes contradictory pastoral initiatives, amid harsh battles, relief missions for Palestinian refugees, theological reflections on Jewish converts to Catholicism, political relations with the Israeli and Jordanian authorities, and liturgical responses to a fluid and uncertain scenario. The pieces of this history include the Jerusalem grand mufti's appeal to Pius XII to support the Arab cause, the Catholic liturgies for peace and international mobilization during the Palestine War and Suez crisis, refugees petitioning the patriarch for aid, and Jewish converts establishing Christian kibbutzim. New archival collections and records reveal hidden aspects of the lives of women, children and other silenced actors, faith communities and religious institutions during and after 1948, connecting narratives that have been marginalized by a dominant historiography more focused on military campaigns or confessional conflicts. A Liminal Church weaves diocesan history with global history. In the momentous decade from 1946 to 1956, the study of the transnational Jerusalem Latin diocese, as split between Israel, Jordan, Egypt and Cyprus, with ties to diaspora and religious international networks and comprising clergy from all over the world, attests to the possibilities of contrapuntal narratives, reintroducing complexity to a deeply and painfully polarized debate, exposing false assumptions and situating changes and ruptures in a long-term perspective.

Between the character's adventures in different dream levels and the manipulation of time in the story, I still find myself picking up on new details when I watch it again for the umpteenth time. It's all great movie magic, but…Ever wonder if there's any truth to the movie Inception? Karen Konkoly is a graduate student researcher in psychology at Northwestern University.

We're back for another episode of Well, Not Perfect. I've been looking forward to sharing this one with you all!    I had the honor to sit down with Dr. Donna Baptiste, I had the opportunity to get to know Dr Baptiste in 2020 during Simply Bee's Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Panel Discussion. Dr. Baptiste is the Department Chair of the Master of Arts Degree in Counseling at the Family Institute at Northwestern University as well as a licensed psychologist. She is an incredible human with a passion for mentoring other professional clinicians, treating families and promoting equity.    In this episode you will hear me discuss both my personal and professional takeaways that have since then changed the way I parent and lead.    Like me, I am confident you will walk away feeling inspired!    Listen in as we dive deep into the hot topic of diversity and inclusion and the importance of raising informed children who appreciate diversity and value inclusion.  We talk about tangible ways that parents can raise a generation who embody these values in their everyday actions.   Donna's insights provide us all with a powerful reminder that one of the most essential roles in a parent's life is to bring up children who will create a world more equitable than the one we have now.    In today's episode you will learn: How to raise children to be inclusive members of society; The relationship between race, identity, and mental health; and finally Strategies and advice for how to have uncomfortable conversations with your loved ones.   Welcome to another episode of Well, Not Perfect.    To connect with Donna, you can find her at: The Family Institute at Northwestern: https://www.family-institute.org/therapists-locations/staff/donna-baptiste LinkedIn: Donna Baptiste

Uncovering a history buried by different nationalist narratives (Jewish, Israeli, Arab and Palestinian) the book by Louis Fishman looks at how the late Ottoman era set the stage for the on-going Palestinian-Israeli conflict. This work presents an innovative analysis of the struggle in its first years, when Palestine was still an integral part of the Ottoman Empire. Fishman argues that in the late Ottoman era, Jews and Palestinians were already locked in conflict: the new freedoms introduced by the Young Turk Constitutional Revolution exacerbated divisions (rather than serving as a unifying factor). Offering an integrative approach, it considers both communities, together and separately, in order to provide a more sophisticated narrative of how the conflict unfolded in its first years. Jews and Palestinians in the Late Ottoman Era, 1908-1914: Claiming the Homeland (Edinburgh UP. 2021) draws on a large range of sources and offers a very interesting look at a specific episode, the Haram al-Sharif incident of 1911, well known to archaeologists but less to historians and certainly the larger public. Fishman both in the book and the podcast takes the audience through the details of this episode and its legacy both in historiographical and political terms. Ultimately Fishman contends that the late Ottoman era and many of the neglected episodes that unfolded in Palestine set the stage for the conflict that lasted for over a century and it is an essential component in the understanding of how the two communities were set on a collision course.

Over the past several decades, they have worked with clients like Motorola, Northwestern University, the University of Chicago, and the American Dental Association. In this episode… Digital transformation has become a buzzword, and people struggle to figure out what it means beyond deploying tech tools and frameworks. It is more about scaling processes, systems, and eventually revenue. Unfortunately, many companies complicate their digital transformation attempts, turning innovation into a burden.  For example, when some companies try to improve the digital experience for customers, they often run into the common mistake of making customers jump through hurdles. They ask too much of the customer too early. But all the customer needs is what's necessary to get them up and running. How can you avoid these pitfalls of digital experience design?  Listen to this episode of the Inspired Insider Podcast with Dr. Jeremy Weisz featuring the Founder of Caxy Interactive, Michael LaVista. They discuss Michael's digital experience design and custom software development consulting work, the mistakes companies are making with their digital transformation efforts, how they can implement change using the agile approach, and more.
