Transgender Inclusion is not Rocket Science: Internalized Oppression and Self Compassion in Academia

Internalized oppression affects academics with marginalized identities as well as their allies who want to act in solidarity with them. In order to address the effects of different dimensions of oppression on the participation of marginalized people in academia, academic institutions need to create awareness and language for the mechanisms and effects of oppression.
We have invited Dr. Kamalanetra Hung to share more light on this topic.

Dr. Hung graduated in the field of bio materials and bio physics from Heidelberg University as a scientist at MPI and has been working on how to make academic institutions more inclusive for trans*, non-binary and intersex people since 2017. Practice involves art, open science and sustainable development goals.
