Allendale Campus, Kirkhof 2204
Topic: Kin-Keeping, the Second Shift, and Invisible Work
Join us for a discussion on the “busy-work”* and “worry-work”* that silently saps your time and energy. We will explore the concepts of kin-keeping, the “Second Shift” and other invisible work often, but not always, completed by women in relationship and family situations. Our conversation will also include work-life balance, stress management, self-care, unplugging and the glorification of busy. *Credit: Jeana Jorgensen of Foxy Folklorist
