Session Summary: This session will include an invited talk and moderated panel discussion focused on developing an understanding of how international scholar identities can be racialized and marginalized within the U.S. context and how this can impact their experiences within the academy. The panelists will share what contributes to or hinders their sense of belonging, and the strategies aspiring allies can employ to support international scholars who may be experiencing xenophobia alongside new aspects of marginalization. This discussion will also explore what individual and collective actions we can take to validate the experiences of international scholars and create more inclusive learning, research, and social environments.
