During the 40th annual conference of the American Association for Applied Linguistics, Gloria Park, associate professor of English, presented “Mama Teacher-Scholars in Academy: Navigating the Privilege and Marginalization of One Mother-Scholar’s Unfinishedness.” 

In her presentation, Park theorized her own critical autobiographical incidents with regards to the dominant discourses and power relations in the academia that she negotiated as a mama teacher-scholar. She unpacked her concurrent experiences of privilege and marginalization given her gender, race, language, and motherhood.
