Author(s):Cooke, Nicole A.
Subject(s):abusive behavior

Abstract:In this autoethnographic article, I reflect on my experiences as a now-tenured faculty member of color, which have been punctuated by incivility, bullying, stress, and abuse. As part of reconciling several acute events, I came to a distinct realization of what I had been going through; I was able to name it, and I was able to articulate the strategies I had been using to cope and thrive. This reflective piece is not meant to minimize the experiences of non-minority faculty, but it is absolutely meant to highlight and emphasize the specific challenges of being a faculty member of color in library and information science, and in the academy writ large.
