Inspired by H. L. Goodall Jr.'s and Barabara J. Jago's respective essays on academic culture and depression, this piece utilizes performative writing to flesh out the popular hashtag #realacademicbios. Drawing on my experiences as a queer faculty of color in the neoliberal academy going through racial battle fatigue, microaggressions, anti-feminist/anti-intersectional critiques, and imposter syndrome, I seek to affectively create a state of depression on the page.
