One source of inequality and frustration in graduate school and beyond, especially for underrepresented and first generation scholars, is feeling like you don’t know things that seem obvious to others – and wondering if you can even ask about them.
Is there something related to your field(s) or to academia generally that you have always wanted to ask about but were embarrassed to? No question is too big or too small. Is it ok to ask for an extension or funding? Who even funds and supports people like me? What does this academic term everyone keeps using mean? How to pronounce someone’s name?
