Nadine’s workshop helped me articulate pragmatic and conceptual consequences of my work and was the first space I’ve ever been encouraged to claim and shape my own conceptual approach. The workshop coached me to realize where I get stuck and examine it as an interesting problem to explore in itself, rather than feeling “wrong” and…

One of the best decisions I’ve ever made was clicking on a link that a Woman of Color faculty member shared on social media promoting Nadine Naber’s work. I reached out to Nadine not necessarily knowing on what I wanted us to focus but inspired by the statement on her website, “I believe every person…

Nadine’s understanding and enactment of feminist pedagogy, while focused on the content, are truly inspirational and even heartwarming. Nadine’s presentation on self-healing along with the encouragement and insightful feedback for reconceptualizing the frameworks/lenses through which we think and write was freeing. It would be wonderful to refashion the academy to reflect such values. If only…!

I am still enjoying and appreciating the sense of liberation the workshop, time, and community circle created at the workshop provided to me. For a long time, I was not sure if I could do this research well. I wanted to counter the stress and anxiety. So often, I wandered around my research goals, not…

Writing my book, I struggled to put forward my arguments beyond their intersections with my own experience as a Palestinian immigrant woman. When Dr. Naber read drafts of my book chapters, her gracious encouragement, comments, and suggestions led me to bluntly assert my ideas and gave me self-confidence as a scholar and researcher. She encouraged…

Working with Dr. Naber has transformed my relationship with writing. Her strength-based approach has empowered me in the very demanding path of academia. Editors often give brief feedback about changes needed, but without the proper skills to execute the changes, writing can feel like a devastating process. Dr. Naber, in the first hour alone of…
