Surviving White Academia

digital event

"Surviving White Academia" – yes, but how exactly? Answers to this question are diverse, contradictory, sad and hilarious. What actually colonial practices do to me? How can I take care of myself without blaming myself when at the end of the day I am still at the end of my rope? Together we will look for first steps together and the lecturer shares knowledge and experiences of other students.
