Odyssey

Odyssey creators resonate with their audiences because of their authentic and unique perspectives and experiences they share. Panel Discussions allow us to bring multiple creators together, providing a range of perspectives and experiences to broaden reader understanding.

The following steps provide the framework to host and write a panel discussion on COVID-19 with members of your community.

Step One — Pick your article/panel topic (provided) + Cover Photo

Example: I Miss [Community]: [Community] Students Discuss Life in Quarantine

So a headline could end up looking something like:

"I Miss Tuscaloosa: Alabama Students Discuss Life in Quarantine"

For the cover photo, simply take a picture of you in quarantine or your quarantine set-up!

Step Two — Pick your panel questions:

1. Byline question: Where are you spending quarantine? What's the vibe?

2. How do you feel about our university's response to COVID-19?

3. When did you start to know it was serious? When did you start taking action?

4. What do you miss most about being on campus?

5. What's something you didn't realize you'd miss?

6. What's the first thing you're doing when you get back?

7. How are you helping those around you?

Also, make sure to include panel member info:

  • Name
  • Year in school
  • Photo for panel graphic (we'll create this graphic for you during editing)

Step Three — Identify your panel:

1. It should be 3-5 people, including yourself.
2. They all have to be registered as Odyssey creators.
3. Creator Tip: consider how their similarities or differences will play into your article.

Step Four — Get your responses:

1. Send your questions to each panel member (email or Slack)

2. Set a deadline to respond (we suggest giving them at least 24-48hrs)

Step 5 — Write your article in the CMS

**Use our HQ COVID Panel to help guide your formatting.**

1. Provide context for your article

2. Introduce your panel (Name, Year in school, and byline based on response to Question #1 above.)

3. List your questions and answers by panel member

4. Contact Kat when you're done, and we'll do our best to add some special graphics

Step 6 — Add authors

NOTE: you will note have permissions in CORE to add authors, so you will have to add a note at the bottom of the article:

"This article was co-written with [add names and hyperlink their Odyssey profiles]"

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
