In this chapter, the authors explore the concept of identity and how it is linked to agency. The authors also examine the influences of institutional affordances on the construction of academic identity and sense of agency. Through their discussion, the authors highlight the key benefit of proactively reflecting on personal experiences during doctoral training: it allows students to develop a better sense of who they are and how they fit in academia.
