IAS faculty member Alice Pedersen attended the Association for Contemplative Mind in Higher Education annual conference in San Jose, CA. This year's theme, "Radicalizing Contemplative Education: Compassion, Intersectionality, and Justice in Challenging Times" offered discussion and workshops on integrating social justice pedagogies with contemplative pedagogies. Pedersen presented a poster on the research and development of her current course, "The Practices and Politics of Yoga," which integrates Discovery Core 1 with Interdisciplinary Writing, and relies on daily contemplative and embodied practices in the classroom.
