Nothing Never Happens is a journey into cutting-edge pedagogical theory and praxis, where we connect with leading voices in radical teaching and learning. With our conversation partners, we engage a wide range of approaches — including but not limited to radical democratic, abolitionist, decolonial feminist/womanist, queer, anarchist, and popular grassroots models. Our work is guided by and indebted to the wisdom of our students and community partners, in and far beyond the colleges where we teach.


Co-Host Tina Pippin is the Wallace M. Alston Professor of Bible and Religion at Agnes Scott College, a historic women’s college in Decatur, GA. She teaches religious studies, gender and women’s studies, and human rights. An author of numerous articles and books on pedagogy, and a winner of the American Academy of Religion Teaching Award, she is continually growing as a teacher-activist.


Co-Host Lucia Hulsether is an Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at Skidmore College. She writes and teaches about the history of capitalism and labor; religion in the Americas; feminist, queer, and critical race theory; and theory and method in the study of religion. Long ago she attended Agnes Scott College, where she learned firsthand the power and potential of democratic classrooms, departments, and social movements.
