10. On Being a ‘Migrant Academic,’ Precarious Passports, and Invisible Struggles

In this chapter, I address the position of a ‘migrant academic’ having to deal with visa applications, and I want to call out a sort of bureaucratic madness that affects the most precarious passports. I suggest that in the current context of such precarity I write about in my piece, adopting a systematically empathic approach have a potential to enable the imagination and materialization of a more just academic community.
