Unintentional Transgressions and Other Reflections on the Job Search Process

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.


In this article I examine connections between my past experiences on the academic job market and my research interests, particularly in regard to the notion of transgression. I offer my personal “story” of job seeking as a contribution to the dialogue concerning the relationships between personal lives and professional experiences, and as a case study of how considerations of merit can become clouded by personal and social discomfort with difference.
