Dr. Naber’s workshop was a very rewarding experience for me as an Arts Administration and Policy graduate student interested in transdisciplinary collaborative practices. I appreciated her straight-forwardness in discussing academic anxieties and typical obstacles when approaching less explored research areas and methods often criticized by tunnel-visioned academics. She gives both practical and emotional advice on how to negotiate both this individual criticism and navigating a larger world of academia. She was also very transparent in her own research and activist practice, sharing current projects, and difficult questions around civic participation and policy change. I highly recommend this workshop for students looking to challenge and expand their field.
