In academia you have to have publications. For a career in academia, journal articles and books are the essential prerequisite (but not a guarantee for success). In principle there's nothing wrong with that requirement because it really is important to put one's research out there and demonstrate one's knowledge of literature, research standards and methodology.
However, the world of publishing does not stand free from problems. Who gets published where, what gets published, in what language must one publish to be "relevant", who gets to read what is being published (most academic journals require institutional access to get past the expensive pay wall). These issues are all impacted by structural sexism, racism, ableism and institutionalised inequalities.
Furthermore, our usual neat lists of publications leave half of the story out - the difficult writing processes, the hours one puts into editing, the rejections, the feedback. The backlash.
Here's my list - it ranges from peer-reviewed journal articles to blog posts, from English to Estonian. The back stories entail rejections, hate mail, but also excitement, wonderful collaborations, change.
