‘Imposter Syndrome’ as a Public Feeling in Higher Education

Monday 4th June 2018

British Sociological Association Early Career Forum Regional Event

School of Education, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow

‘Imposter syndrome’ – sensations of not belonging, feeling that one’s competence and success are fundamentally fraudulent – is anecdotally very common in higher education, is popularly understood as an individual problem, and presents a particular challenge to early career academics. This BSA Early Career Forum event invites early career academics and postgraduate students in Sociology and related disciplines to explore the possibilities of re-thinking ‘imposterism’ as a public issue in HE.

Confirmed plenary speakers include Prof Yvette Taylor (School of Education, University of Strathclyde) and Dr Barbara Read (Robert Owen Centre for Educational Change, University of Glasgow).
