Queering Nineteeth-Century Romantic Friendship: Mathilde Franziska Aneeke and Mary Booth

The Center for the Advancement of the Humanities is delighted to announce the next talk of the Humanities Research Colloquium.  On Thursday, December 2, at 4 p.m. via Teams, Dr. Alison Efford, Associate Professor of History, will present "Queering Nineteenth-Century Romantic Friendship: Mathilde Franziska Anneke and Mary Booth, 1859-1865.”
German American feminist Mathilde Franziska Anneke and Milwaukee abolitionist Mary Booth enjoyed an intense, cohabiting relationship from 1859 to 1865. Although Anneke and Booth’s romantic friendship was unique, it offers a window into a type of bond that found social sanction. In this talk, Dr. Efford discusses her collaboration with Dr. Viktorija Bilic (UWM) to translate and publish Anneke’s extraordinary letters. She argues for a queer interpretation of romantic friendship that resists the categories of lesbian or straight, sexual or platonic, and she suggests the lesson this form of relationship might hold for our own times.
Everyone is welcome to attend; please spread the word!

How to Become a More Inclusive Leader

Why is inclusive leadership important? 
We live in a diverse business world. There’s not just variability in our workforce, there also is diversity among the students we want to attract, in the patients we serve, in the messages we share or consume via various platforms and the markets we want to expand to. Inclusive leadership helps balance all these elements – inclusive leaders adapt quickly to diverse scenarios and alternate perspectives with an open, non-judgmental mind to bring on the best results possible. And research shows that, when done right, there are many benefits; teams perform better and more collaboratively and make better overall decisions. Learn realistic, best practices on your journey to becoming an inclusive leader.

Developing Grit — Strategies for Success in Work and Life

Grit is mental toughness. Grit is the ability to persevere to achieve difficult long-term goals. Grit is strongly associated with success in personal and professional life. Grit involves several elements: passion and purpose, development of habits and coping with unpleasant emotions such as fear, discouragement or embarrassment. 
This course will examine the nature of grit and identify specific methods for developing it.

Cultural Complications 

Every day, patients, physicians and staff contend with implicit and explicit bias in the hospital environment and workplace. We are increasingly recognizing the negative effects of this exposure on individuals and on the culture of entire organizations. Recognizing instances of bias and developing mechanisms to combat bias are challenging but necessary in creating a diverse and equitable workplace. In the department of surgery, we have implemented the Cultural Complications Curriculum to foster discussions surrounding the complex issues of bias in the hospital environment. Designed to be presented during standard departmental Morbidity and Mortality conferences, the scenarios cover themes related to diversity, equity and inclusion. This presentation details how the curriculum was implemented in our department, and also provides examples of the themes and associated case scenarios.
