Dr. Bettina L. Love is an award-winning author and the Athletic Association Endowed Professor at the University of Georgia. Dr. Love's talk will discuss the struggles and the possibilities of committing ourselves to an abolitionist goal of educational freedom and intersectional justice, so we all can move beyond what she calls the educational survival complex. Abolitionist Teaching is built on the creativity, imagination, boldness, ingenuity, and rebellious spirit and methods of abolitionists to demand and fight for an educational system and world where all students are thriving, not simply surviving. Dr. Love's writing, research, teaching, and educational advocacy work meet at the intersection of anti-racism, anti-blackness, carceral studies, education, abolition, and Black joy. In 2020, Dr. Love co-founded the Abolitionist Teaching Network (ATN) to develop and support teachers and parents to fight injustice within their schools and communities. She has also provided commentary for various news outlets including "NPR", "Ed Week", "The Guardian", and the "Atlanta Journal Constitution". She is the author of the book "We Want to Do More Than Survive: Abolitionist Teaching and the Pursuit of Educational Freedom" (2019).

Join Dr. Christian Braneon, an urban climate expert and scientist at NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York for a discussion on how the current moment offers a unique opportunity to imagine alternative futures in which policies, infrastructure, governance, and value systems are recalibrated with equity and sustainability at the center. Dr. Braneon will highlight some of the ways that Earth observations are being utilized to map the distribution of urban heat in cities and to understand the impacts of racist policies such as redlining. He will also offer perspectives on how a community-driven and justice-oriented approach can be employed to tackle related challenges such as environmental racism and health disparities. This is a joint talk with the Social Science Colloquium Series and is cosponsored by The Donald C. Samuel Fund for Economics and Politics and The Laura Kirchman Manuelidis '63 Science and Literary Arts Endowment Fund. This event is a part of our series presented by "The Sarah Lawrence Interdisciplinary Collaborative on the Environment" and is open to the entire Sarah Lawrence community.

Join Dr. Michel Gelobter P'24 for a discussion on the history of climate justice as both a concept and a movement, particularly with respect to President Biden's administration and more comprehensive, youth-led actions. Acknowledging that climate justice is vital to how the climate problem will be shaped over the next 20 to 30 years, Dr. Gelobter will address what that path may look like and highlight some of the key uncertainties of the future. Dr. Gelobter co-founded the New York City Environmental Justice Alliance and led Redefining Progress, where he worked to design the world's most aggressive climate legislation, AB32-California's Global Warming Solutions Act. As an academic, Dr. Gelobter was the founding director of the Program on Environmental Policy at Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs. He is currently the CEO/Founder of Cooler, Inc., the first consumer-facing climate software company, and Managing Director of Reflective Earth, a non-profit devoted to slowing climate change by increasing the reflection of heat away from the Earth. This event is sponsored by The Laura Kirchman Manuelidis '63 Science and Literary Arts Endowment Fund. It is part of our series presented by "The Sarah Lawrence Interdisciplinary Collaborative on the Environment" and is open to the entire Sarah Lawrence community.

Arietta Slade '73 Ph.D. is an internationally recognized theoretician, clinician, researcher, and teacher. Arietta is currently a Professor of Clinical Child Psychology at the Yale Child Study Center, and Professor Emerita in the doctoral program in Clinical Psychology at the City College of New York, and Co-Founder and Director of Training of Minding the Baby®, an interdisciplinary reflective home visiting program for high-risk mothers, infants, and their families at the Yale Child Study Center and School of Nursing. Arietta's lecture will center on reflective parenting, supporting the development of attachment and symbolization in young children and their caregivers. Reflective parenting is built on the foundations of safety (the absence of threat and fear), the capacity to regulate (quiet mind and body), and an openness and trust in relationships. This presentation will address ways that practitioners, educators, and communities can support parents in developing these foundations and so provide a safe and secure environment in which their children can flourish. Arietta has published widely on attachment, mentalization, and the early parent-child relationship. A zoom link will be sent to registrants within 24 hours of the event or email virtualevents@sarahlawrence.edu.
