Do you feel you're not "enough" or "don't belong" in the academy? Do you feel debilitated and cannot write (for days or months) after negative feedback or rejection, or due to the above feelings?

In this workshop, we will discuss some of the common manifestations and pitfalls of the pervasive shame culture in the academy, and identify strategies to develop one's sense of worthiness to express one's ideas and become prolific as a minoritized scholar.

Riyad Shahjahan is an assistant professor of higher education at Michigan State University. His scholarship is on equity and social justice education, globalization of higher education, and anti/postcolonial theory. He has published over 22 refereed journal articles, including some of the top-tiered journals or handbooks in education. Riyad views scholarly publishing as a mode of social activism and is therefore committed to encouraging and nurturing those who wish to speak their 'truth' to power.
