Supporting Graduate Students of Color in German Studies: A Syllabus

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter reviews research on the psychological effects, such as marginalization, racial microaggressions, and stereotype threat, that impede success for graduate students of color. These effects are compounded in predominantly white fields, like German Studies, and can prevent graduate students of color from thriving in these fields. By explaining and identifying key factors that can contribute to either an inclusive or hostile learning environment, this chapter offers concrete suggestions on how best to support minoritized graduate students as they navigate the complex waters of academia.
