Do you feel like a fraud? Do you think you got where you are as a result of luck or a mistake? If so, you’re like many people in academia and in the arts. It’s important to recognize this syndrome, because even if you don’t suffer from it, chances are people around you - and many of your students, if you teach - will. This workshop is designed to raise your sensitivity to this syndrome, to help you reflect about it, and to discuss strategies to deal with it.

With Penelope Eckert (Stanford) and Monica Macaulay (Wisconsin).
