    The event is an annual gathering of Drexel University College of Medicine's most musically talented students and faculty with the goal of raising money to benefit patients of the Dorothy Mann Center for Pediatric and Adolescent HIV at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children.

    The event will feature talented performers, a silent auction, buffet dinner and open bar. The money raised during the benefit concert helps to provide affected families with emergency funds for housing, utilities, food, rent and other expenses. To date, PABC has raised over $603,000 to benefit children at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children.

    There are numerous ways to get involved with this worthwhile cause, starting with attending the event! Whether you can attend or not, you may donate money or silent auction items to support the efforts of Drexel students in raising funds for this important cause.

    Rebecca Tarlau is Assistant Professor of Education and Labor Studies at the Pennsylvania State University. She was inspired to pursue a career in education by her experiences with community organizing in Latin America and the United States, where she witnessed the potential education has to advance economic and racial justice in poor communities. Dr. Tarlau is compelled by the question, what role does education play in facilitating social change, both within formal school systems and in informal contexts? She completed her doctorate in Social and Cultural Studies in Education at the University of California, Berkeley, and a postdoctoral fellowship at Stanford University. Her research agenda has three broad areas of focus: (1) theories of the state and state-society relations; (2) social movements, critical pedagogy, and learning; (3) Latin American education and development. Her scholarship engages in debates in the fields of political sociology, international and comparative education, social movements, critical pedagogy, global and transnational sociology, and social theory. She has a book forthcoming: Occupying Schools, Occupying Land: How the Landless Workers Movement Transformed Brazilian Education (Oxford University Press, 2019).

  • Pennoni Panels: The Electability Question: What Makes an Electable Woman?

    Thursday, February 27, 2020

    6:30 PM-8:00 PM

    Parkway Central Library 1901 Vine Street Philadelphia, PA 19103

    • Everyone

    Whether it is Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez’s bold lip color, Hillary Clinton’s cankles, or Elizabeth Warren’s affectations, women running for office or currently in positions of power encounter a range of commentary regarding their appearance and qualifications. In a 2018 study, political scientists Rachel Garrett and Dominik Stecula found that women described with masculine-coded language like “ambitious” and assertive” were considered more qualified and capable than those described more femininely like “compassionate.”  Language not only imparts visual information about a candidate, but it allows the public to dissect her brand. How do we utilize language  while being  conscious of the impact our words have on female candidates’ electability?  This panel seeks to unpack the way we talk about women, the balance candidates have to strike between qualified and likable, and methods for redirecting the discourse.
