This workshop is intended for faculty at the University of Michigan (all campuses, all ranks).

Nadine Naber is a public scholar, activist, author, and teacher from Al-Salt, Jordan and the Bay Area of California. She’s the founder of Liberate Your Research Workshops and a Professor at the University of Illinois in the Gender and Women’s Studies and Global Asian Studies Programs. For 10 years, she worked as a professor at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor (2003-2013), where she co-founded the Arab and Muslim American Studies program.

Dr. Naber will lead participants in healing from academic anxieties related to imposter syndrome, overwhelm, and racial/gendered oppression. These healing practices affirm forms of radical self love and collective empowerment that have immense implications for fostering creativity and writing prosperity.  Grounded in self-confidence and collective power, participants will work on naming and claiming their theories and methods with clarity. Participants will then develop a writing plan grounded in what they stand for and the future they envision for themselves and the world around us. 

Participants will be invited to attend an in-person follow-up session on the Ann Arbor campus on May 13, 2022. The purpose of the follow-up session is to reflect on the implementation of what they’ve learned and the goals they’ve set.
