Graduate Symposium on Creating Space to Conceptualize Different Families

Matthew Isherwood and Naoki Takemura organized an extremely dynamic Symposium on Creating Space to Conceptualize Different Families last week. I really appreciated the depth of presentations and challenges to consider and celebrate different families & ways of conceptualizing mothers and fathers. As well, the audience members all deserve a raucous round of applause! Special thanks for arranging with Dr. Kedrick James to attend,  speak, and interact with us throughout!
