Abstract:This paper presents a critique of systemic LIS education and its hegemonic “White-Ism” discourse prevalent across the conceptualization and implementation of doctoral programs. The text illuminates the structural aspects of the doctoral experience beyond a singular narrative, to present implications for a global educational practice. The paper extends an auto-ethnographic approach to personal narrative and storytelling from the critical perspectives of a student + guide. It identifies challenges to overcome barriers in achieving milestones in the Ph. D. journey while exposing programmatic deficiencies in the process.
