Nadine’s workshops are grounded in the very things we are taught to suppress in academia: emotions and feelings. She does not teach productivity hacks or unveil secret codes. Rather, she facilitates space for minoritized scholars to sense, name, and work through our various responses to institutional violence and overwork so that we can move forward with calm, clarity, and joy. Moreover, she was a sharp editor and a supportive coach who truly believed in the work all of us were doing. Her homework assignments and our group discussions helped me zero in on what my book’s contributions were and gave me the push I needed to make progress this summer.
