- Previous studies have established particular patterns of inequity, micro, and macro-aggressions that affect faculty of color at U.S. universities. This article provides an autoethnographic perspective on the experiences of women of color in LIS. It focuses specifically on the ways that prioritizing comfort and civility over equity and justice can create structural precarity – precarity that is built into academic systems of reward and punishment – for female faculty of color. The article also gives brief suggestions for resolving this issue.
