Year Published: 2019

Since the 1980s, Dr. Peggy McIntosh has been writing about feeling like a fraud, or the fear that we must not actually deserve any praise we receive, sometimes referred to as imposter syndrome. This essay reinforces the idea that feelings of fraudulence may be imposed by a hierarchical culture rather than any actual weakness or personal shortcoming. This essay appears as chapter 10 in On Privilege, Fraudulence, and Teaching As Learning, Selected Essays 1981—2019 by Peggy McIntosh (Routledge).
