Abstract

This article includes three essays to explore how U.S. universities engage in practices that terrorize, threat, and betray women of color in academia. Drawing from personal narratives to illuminate the psychoanalytical argument, this essay bridges together both storytelling, actual events, and deeper racial psychoanalysis and critical emotion studies to better understand how whiteness operates in academia. The essays are also situated in a particular emotionally tense political and social moment in the United States.
