University of Strathclyde

I just started a new job as a Lecturer at the University of Strathclyde, based in Glasgow. I’m absolutely thrilled to be a part of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences. It was a big, big move – from Saskatchewan to Strathclyde – and, to be honest, I’m still making the adjustment.

( Chips v. Fries ** Football v. Soccer ** Jumper v. Sweater ** Pants v. Underwear ** and so on, and so on…)

Luckily, the transition has been eased by amazing new colleagues, who are quite simply awesome. All the worst horror stories you hear about in academia, including internecine squabbling or raging egomaniacal personalities colliding with each other over hum-drum topics, aren’t an issue here. There’s way too much collegiality and friendliness. Everyone’s chipping in. It’s weird. And I like it.

I will be helping with two modules: (1) Disease and Society & (2) Madness and Society. It’s gonna be a blast!
