Each research assistant has written memos in response to their experiences in each workshop. The purpose of these memos is to provide a space for reflection while archiving the ideas and key themes that occurred during the workshops. The Zoom breakout rooms with one-on-one conversations are not included in the recordings provided on the Research Catalogue, and these memos provide insight to those conversations and link them to the larger group conversations as well as additional resources and texts read during my research assistant (RA) position. These writings are works in progress, allowing the space for updates, edits, and feedback. These working documents are linked below, please feel free to add comments and questions throughout the document.

The research assistants also compiled a bibliography of additional materials such as readings, videos, performances, and projects that explored topics mentioned during the workshops and other themes that applied to their personal interests and early thesis development.
