Confessions of an Academic Dilettante, or What I Learned from G. Gordon Liddy

    Thursday, December 5, 5-6:30 pm, with reception to follow
    in the series
    Senior Scholars' Series: The Passions That Drive Academic Life
  •  
  • Jerry Wasserman retired at the end of 2016 as Professor Emeritus of English and Theatre after 44 ½ years at UBC, including five years as Head of the Department of Theatre and Film. But his career profile was not exactly conventional. Most successful university professors go for depth in their chosen field of research. He went, instead, for breadth. Call him eclectic. Or a dilettante. His scholarship ranges from modern fiction and Canadian drama to blues music. And he’ll bet he is the only academic in North America, or maybe the world, who worked simultaneously for decades as teacher and scholar, professional stage and screen actor, and professional theatre critic.
