|In the contexts of our practice of examining the nature of self and of a recent conference on "Othering and Belonging", we look at ways that we create an "other". We may do this in terms of social groups (according to race, age, gender, religion, ability, disability, etc.), inter-personally, or in terms of parts of oneself. This week we focus on "othering" (the other is often noticed but not really known or seen)how to notice otherings and how to disrupt othering.
Next week, we focus more on Belonging. |
