On Wednesday this week, our first day of classes, we each said a few words about who we are and why we came to this class, and where we are. We are all in the midst of this pandemic, but we are coming together to learn and to prevail. At least, that is my hope.
We also began teasing out various concepts, definitions, and assumptions about Latinas and about Religion. I mark those with capital letters so we recognize them as signs we are going to keep defining, resisting, debating, and learning with.
I invite you to post your reflection on that exchange, whether it is your own thoughts on defining Latinas and/or Religion, or telling us a bit more about why you came to take this class, what you hope or expect to learn with the group between now and December, or how you think that this class may help you strengthen (maybe also purify?) your toolbox for life.
Try to post your reflection by Saturday at 5pm. If you cannot by then, please try to do so some time next week. We are going to be posting weekly, and this notebook will be one of my guides to see and appreciate your learning growth this semester.
