UBC, ALS, Grief & Steven Galloway's Attempt to Close the Sessional/Tenure Gap
Alison - thanks so much for your poignant account. As a privileged, able-bodied male, with no taxing duties to family, no student debt - my two full, glorious years as a adjunct at UBC (journalism), filled with admiration and love for my students, came to an abrupt end when my 35 years worth of experience no longer were deemed sufficient to continue teaching. Our experiences cannot be compared, I realize that. But I do understand the loss. Thank you for your eloquence and elegiac understatement. Thank you.
Hi Allison. Thank for this piece. I'm so sorry your colleagues treated you this way. Are you planning on doing Zoom workshops in the future?
Thanks for sharing your story, Alison! The path you chose shouldn't be this difficult. I hope you are finding more happiness and success in your writing. Big hugs!
