ABOUT the BLOG

Logo“Many individuals are drawn to higher education, including academic careers, because of academia’s potential for change.  Countless prospective and current graduate students note that their desire to make a difference in their communities or society in general was their primary decision to attend graduate training.  Unfortunately, many colleges and universities in the US have practiced outright discrimination and exclusion throughout history, particularly against women, people of color, and disabled people/people with disabilities.

Today, academia — like every social institution — is structured hierarchically, producing numerous professional and personal obstacles for academics from marginalized backgrounds.  Scholars who are women, of color, lesbian, trans*, bisexual, gay, queer, disabled, working-class or poor, immigrants, fat, religious minorities, and/or single parents are faced daily with the difficult tension between academia’s narrow definition of success and their own politics, identities, needs, happiness, and health.

By creating this site, we hope to provide a space for academics who exists at the margins of academia.  We will provide news, information, personal stories, and resources for scholars who are, at best, conditionally accepted in the academy.  Conditionally Accepted is an anti-racist, pro-feminist, pro-queer, anti-transphobic, anti-fatphobic, anti-ableist, anti-ageist, anti-classist, and anti-xenophobic web community.

You can see more about the site’s editors here.”
