Ep. 2:24 Not One of Us: The Gatekeepers of Academe
Gatekeeping is endemic in the academy, and in some ways necessary as part of the evaluation process, but it doesn’t have to be as cruel, racist, and inflexible as it has been. Karen and Kel start with the job search process, both the casual cruelties of how searches are run, as well as the exclusionary criteria used for evaluating candidates. Then we turn to “Reviewer 2.” If cruel and abusive reviews are so common in academia that they have a universally understood name…. we have a problem.
