Liberate Your Research
This 3 hour workshop can accommodate any number of participants and relies on the beauty of collective care and support to uplift one another. The activities foster strategies for healing from academic oppression; naming and claiming one's core beliefs, politics, and ideas; and affirming a set of liberated theories and methodologies. Workshop participants are given brief homework assignments beforehand. In addition to the training I provide, we workshop these assignments together. These workshops serve academics at all levels and ranks. Here is what people have to say after participating in a Liberate Your Research Workshop.
Customized Workshops are organized for specific kinds of challenges. For example, I held a customized workshop for the Center for Middle Eastern Studies at the University of California, Berkely targeted the particular kinds of academic challenges scholars of Middle East Studies face. My workshop for the National Women's Studies Association, addressing the struggles interdisciplinarity feminist studies scholars face also exemplifies my customized approach.
Workshop Series entail working with a group of writers over a period of time. I provide individual support and coaching to each workshop member as they work to achieve a particular writing goal during our time together. For example, my summer workshop at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor provided 8 scholars with support in crafting a summer writing plan; strategies for maintaining well being and accountability while working towards these goals; individual and collective feedback on their writing, theories, methodologies, interventions, and contributions; and support in crafting future writing goals.
