In this session, panelists will define and describe how during times of crisis, such as COVID-19, disaster academic capitalism and white supremacy work together to reinforce oppressive organizational structures and practices concerning employees in the academic workplace. Panelists will discuss how crises provide convenient organizing frameworks and impetus for furthering neoliberal agendas and how coalitional and unapologetically revisionist work is necessary for creating a more just and safe workplace.
