Journal Club

The journal club was designed to foster a common set of understandings and a common language related to the CCE’s mission.  It offered staff members an opportunity to integrate rigorous academic scholarship into their public work.  CCE staff members met weekly to discuss one short reading (less than 15-20 pages). 

Loosely construed, week 1 of the block introduced a concept, week 2 provided a more advanced perspective, week 3 explored implications for the particular work of each staff member, and week 4 addressed some aspect of self-care.

Though a good idea, the journal club has ceased meeting while the CCE undergoes some staffing changes.  This page will be updated when we have determined the best way to move forward.
