Praise for Conditionally Accepted

Anchored in the art of personal storytelling, the voices in Conditionally Accepted speak to the structural inequality faced by minoritized scholars in order to help any person dealing with racism, homophobia, or sexism inside or out of the ivory tower. I wish I could have had this book in graduate school.

Anthony Christian Ocampo, California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, author of Brown and Gay in LA: The Lives of Immigrant Sons

This essential new volume is a call for justice, a reckoning between scholars of color and the academic hierarchies that persist in devaluing and diminishing their work. This book is a resource guide and a resting place for wearied, brilliant souls who might be wondering what their path forward should look like. The sheer breadth and depth of voices compiled here, and the intentional inclusion of contingent faculty among them, remind us that academia is not in any guise worthy of the talent, insight, and creativity that minoritized scholars bring to it.
