    The marginalization of critical perspectives that has plagued continental philosophers, heterodox economists, women's and ethnic studies scholars for decades is now affecting STEM diversity scholars, and engineering education equity scholars in particular. There is a reported rise nationwide in the targeted harassment of academics for their scholarship. We now have multiple cases in engineering education to consider. What are the stakes of this phenomenon and our institutions' responses? Several engineering education scholars who have been targeted will serve on a panel in this session to talk about the disciplinarity of this increase, its form and tone, ways institutions can better support the work of these scholars, and how scholars can bolster one another.
