As students and researchers, we are in an increasingly precarious position in the neoliberal academy. With the COVID-19 crisis, continuing austerity, and the devaluing of our labor, raising our voices and the voices of our community is more important than ever.

This hour-long webinar was dialogic in nature. We worked together as a community to discuss and work through the systemic issues we currently face in the in the academy and in our scholarship, communicated our visions of a more equitable academic space, and brainstormed what steps we can take to make that future a reality. Matt and Zane facilitated this discussion, offerered their specific advice on critical research theories and techniques, and were available for consultations on individual projects, scholarship, publishing, and research methodologies.
