This is why we need academic aunties. This podcast will talk about how to navigate this treacherous world and maybe even plant seeds for the beginnings of structural transformation. Come listen to Auntie Ethel and her friends. Episodes drop monthly.

    A-holes in the Academy

    Why are there so many in academia? Does the institution attract them or does the institution make them? What is institutional gaslighting? And how do we care for each other in this often toxic space? In this episode, we chat with academic aunties, Dr. Nisha Nath, an Assistant Professor of Equity Studies at Athabasca University, and Dr. Mariam Georgis, a SSHRC Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Manitoba about coping with exclusionary academic norms, the messages that the neoliberal academy sends that breeds toxic behaviour, and the value of checking in.

    Mentioned in this Episode:

    - "I’m concerned for your academic career if you talk about this publicly" by Erica Violet Lee

    - "What researchers think about the culture they work in" by Wellcome Foundation
