This article follows two women-academics engaging in a methodology of collaborative writing that holds each other in folds of friendship. By writing together that which has been hidden, new openings are being created where experiences of trauma, mourning, and forgetting are seeking out ways to re-member and heal. In this process, the authors are discovering ways of becoming-differently in their positioning as women-academics.
