This chapter offers a description and analysis of a pedagogy project—a graduate seminar held at Syracuse University in 2012 which, while focusing on transnational feminist theories, fostered a critical praxis of radical feminist cross-border solidarities and nurtured epistemic friendships. The chapter examines the steps that constituted this collaborative process, including building a unit plan geared toward undergraduates, researching appropriate topics of discussion, and creating assignments and learning objectives. From here, the chapter considers some significant questions on friendship in light of this collaborative project in order to animate the complexities of such generative collective processes that foster solidarity, enable social action, and, also, reproduce inequality.

Keywords:   epistemic friendships, feminist cross-border solidarity, transnational feminist theories, generative collective processes, social action, inequality, collective knowledge-making
