This workshop discusses ways in which post-secondary institutions and academia as a whole offer few resolutions to scholars and students living in what I refer to as “voluntary” exile. At times, these institutions even aid in creating paths for individuals who are uncertain about their place in academia to an eventual involuntary return.
