Why I Blog

Being in a liminal space means being at the threshold. Living at the boundary.

As a future scholar, this is precisely where I need to be: at the frontier of knowledge and understanding.

Through this blog, I hope to explore all the known chapters, and all the current knowledge so that I may one day make a contribution that pushes management thought forward. My goal is to embrace to the fullest extent this period of my life where I strive to transition from consumer to producer of knowledge.

As a dyslexic, I live in a liminal space by virtue of my neurodiveristy. When I look at a page to read, I often find myself in a space between understanding and not. It can be frustrating, but it is my reality. No matter where I go and what I do, I will always experience words on paper as something that is somewhere in between concrete understandable knowledge and floating indistinguishable letters of potential.

I hope to document the ups, downs, and awesomes of this journey!

  1. Hi Clau! I just discovered your blog and it’s amazing! I could have written most of the words you wrote.
    I have dyslexia too (diagnosed while doing my phd) and I know some tools for writing which could be interesting for you and your readers. If you want me to, I can send you a quick presentation of them.

  2. Hello Clau! I am an undergraduate student. I found out I was dyslexic about a year ago. It as been tough on me. I will pursue higher education in the future but I am worried about the stigma of dyslexic and other learning issues that I have. I spoke to my professors about my dyslexia and my goal to attend graduate school but received very cold responses about pursing higher education. I am still working on trying to finish my undergraduate degree. I am trying to stay positive about the future but it is really hard to do so at times. Did you tell any of your professors throughout your education about your dyslexia? If so what were their reactions?

    1. Hi Richane! First, I am so sorry that you are struggling. I am also sorry because this is not surprising. I found out I was dyslexic at the beginning of college. I tried to tell a few professors, and like you got a less than optimistic response. After that, I chose to keep this information to myself to the extent possible. Perhaps we can connect offline so we can talk about how to navigate this. The road ahead will be tough, but it is not going to be impossible. May I have your permission to send you an email?
