Building on the brand new webinar, Knowing Your Own Value in the Academy, Karen and Kel talk about how to identify and overcome the "never enough" ethos that pervades the academic enterprise. We delve into the shame and shaming that manifest this ethos, and link to the ways that the academy takes away autonomy at every turn. Our message today: learning to recognize how the academy uses shame to assert its values of hyper-productivity and competition, allows you to recover your own sense of worth, and to step back and notice when those values are in conflict with your own. In the current crisis, there is no better time to do this work.
