Abstract/Description: Understanding the experiences of Chicanas in doctoral study remains salient because of pervasive doctoral program attrition rates and severe underrepresentation in the professoriate. Chicanas doctoral students engage in these unfamiliar and isolating academic environments with few Chicana faculty or peer mentors to help socialize us. Without such mentors, it is difficult for Chicana doctoral students to develop a scholarly identity. The purpose of this study is to better understand the scholarly identification processes among Chicana doctoral students aspiring to the professoriate. This study adds activism to the scholarly identification process, aiming to understand how Chicana doctoral students become scholar-activists and the ways in which they embody a scholar-activist identity on social media.
