‘You intimidate me’ as a microaggressive controlling image to discipline womyn of color faculty. (2018)


“This essay rectifies limitations in existing microaggression literature by theorizing a particular controlling image as microaggressive. A controlling image operating within the academy is ‘you’re intimidating,’ which carries representational meanings about Others that seeks to discipline womyn of color faculty. The intersectional nature of the controlling image is mired in power and contextual factors that reflect a racial–gendered microaggression.”
