jennifer lisa vest, “what doesn’t kill you”

My dissertation advisor, Professor Barbara Christian, a Black feminist literary scholar, while on her deathbed, told her mentees, that the University had killed her. She cautioned us not to let it do the same to us. Another one of my professors, Latina Feminist scholar Norma Alarcon, was forced to early retire due to medical disability brought on by stress. Viola Cordova, one of the founders of Academic Native American Philosophy, and an important mentor for me as a Native philosopher, died in her fifties of ischemic stroke after a long stressful career working in untenured positions at numerous universities where she was marginalized. The Academy is killing women of color.”
