19. A Letter to Future Adoptee Researchers

On Being a Researcher of Color in Belgium

In this chapter, I use autoethnographic method to illustrate my live experiences as a researcher of colour in Belgium who is committed to anti-racism in majority-white academic spaces. The chapter reflects on the challenges of BIPOC academics to shift the academy towards an anti-racist space.
