The University of California Research Cluster for the Study of Women of Color in Collaboration and Conflict was founded in 1991 by faculty and graduate students at UCSC. Reviving the cluster, and continuing and expanding this work, in 2015-2017, doctoral students from across different California institutions (UC Santa Cruz, UC Davis, UC Berkeley, Hartnell College, California State University, Long Beach) have collaborated to co-author and co-edit this journal on the theme of witnessing and testimony as a decolonial feminist methodology. This collaboration across disciplines has allowed us to build upon our diverse experiences and training as we deeply examine and push the nexus of identity, subjectivity, violence, conflict, and collaboration.
