Abstract

Migrant Academics’ Narratives of Precarity and Resilience in Europe dives into six main themes that correspond to different aspects of the migrant academic experience. Under each theme, the editors collected autoethnographic accounts of different scholars working in various Western academic institutions. The first theme, ‘(Non)Belonging,’ centers around the issues of othering, the post-colonial predicament of precarity and enforced mobility, and the process of (de)constructing and (un)learning who and what an academic should be. The second one, ‘(In)visible Inclusion and Exclusion,’ discusses the painful experience of what Dragana Stojmenovska describes as “knowing your place” (2023, p. 51) and navigating the manifestation of precarity and exclusion within oneself.
