This roundtable discussion brings the special issue editors, Leece Lee-Oliver and Xamuel Bañales, together with Ula Y. Taylor and Nelson Maldonado-Torres to discuss Ethnic Studies not only as a field of study but also as an ongoing movement. In this moment of great pessimism, potential, and possibility, the roundtable participants provide a way forward by looking back—and inward. Many of the reflections emerge from lived experiences and, in particular, the continued challenges that marginalized faculty face in higher education.
