Although all these people’s credentials are impressive I find myself oddly uncomfortable reading about people rather than reading/viewing their work. This idea of defining a person by her/his academic history is a very westernized concept that, I think, can elevate some people “as experts” and create a hierarchy which can be dismissive and even destructive to others. I have credential too, but I do not identify myself with them because they are only labels.
