Caring Gap

This reading was a great way for us to begin our journey. It, in my opinion, was able to tackle some major concepts early and I know we are going to do a much deeper dive off of this and go on some welcome tangents in order for us to see exactly how these things […]

Do You Really Care?

I immediately resonated with the opening paragraph of Gabriela Saldanha’s, “The Post Pandemic University and the Caring Gap.” As lockdown began, I can recall scrolling through my social media accounts only to continuously view others stating, “this is the time to find yourself,” “you have no excuse to not tackle the new hobby you’ve always […]

Just Call Me Love-A-Lot!

You know, sometimes I really wonder exactly how I got to this point in my life, and the more I contemplate the answer, the more I realize that only potential reason is consistently true; I’m not just myself, but a synthesis of the best parts of the folks in my life, and the reason I […]

Sharing is Caring?

After reading the article on “The Post Pandemic University and the Caring Gap” by Gabriela Saldanha, I could see her point of view on the carers vs non-carers and a distinct gap in between.

Closing the Caring Gap and Opening the World

As someone who doesn’t have any children, reading “The Post Pandemic University and the Caring Gap” by Gabriela Saldanha was eye opening (and it made me extra grateful that my only responsibilities right now are two very easy to care for cats). Saldanha explains how the pandemic is widening the caring gap that already existed […]

The Problem of Prestige

                I’m making my way (slowly) through two of Ibram X. Kendi’s works on antiracism and the history of racist power, policy, and ideas in America. His writing has been transformative for my thinking, and not just in the obvious ways around racism. I’m a small picture person. I don’t really know what makes someone […]

Share the Care

This week’s reading was very interesting and ironic. It seems as if caring has only been kept for certain people, not everyone. Why not? It’s not something to selfishly possess, it needs to be distributed equally to everyone, regardless of race, religion, political beliefs, etc. Gabriela Saldanha’s The Post Pandemic University and the Caring Gap […]
