15. Survival in Silence

Of Guilt and Grief at the Intersection of Precarity, Exile, and Womanhood in Neoliberal Academia

Looking back on a disturbing past experience, 'Survival in Silence' reflects upon gender inequality, rank hierarchy, precarity, and foreignness in European academia from the perspective of an exiled female researcher. In view of her own conflicting feelings and actions during and after the incident, the author confronts the predicaments of resistance on an individual basis as well as the discrepancies between the theory and practice of feminist solidarity.
