Raghavan and Hurley explore the hauntings of imposterism as they manifest in and through a complex interplay of private-professional-intimate and embodied experiences. Through the use of two vignettes and grounded in a discussion of Black, Decolonial and Queer feminisms, the chapter draws specific attention to the complexities arising from, and the deeply personal tensions involved in, navigating positions of privilege, marginality, and besiegement as they relate to gender, race, sexuality, caste, and class. In doing so, they provide a nuanced, collaborative reflection on authenticity, conformity, and resistance in a neoliberal academy that fetishizes and commodifies otherness in problematic, exploitative ways.
