    Senior Scholars' Series: The Passions that Drive Academic Life
  • Nancy Gallini is Professor Emeritus in the Vancouver School of Economics. She was Dean of Arts at UBC (2002-2010) and, before that, a faculty member at the University of Toronto. Her research focuses on problems in innovation, intellectual property and competition policy. She has served on several economic journal editorial boards, SSHRC’s governing council, the Mitacs Research Council, and as president of the Canadian Economics Association (2016-17). In 2020, she was appointed Fellow of the Canadian Economics Association.

    Jerry Wasserman is Emeritus Professor of English and Theatre, having retired in 2016 after 44 years teaching at UBC. Jerry is also an actor and theatre critic with Lifetime Achievement awards from the Canadian Association for Theatre Research and the Greater Vancouver Professional Theatre Association. He is a member of the BC Entertainment Hall of Fame.

    This ongoing series is offered in association with the UBC Emeritus College. Responding to the necessities of the COVID-19 pandemic we have changed our format this year to present senior UBC academics in conversation with interviewer, theatre critic, and actor Jerry Wasserman. We will hear from colleagues from several academic disciplines whose intellectual interests, personal trajectories and engagement with the university and society differ considerably. Conversations will range widely across personal experiences and academic careers. The conversations will be of interest to early-, mid-, and late- career scholars, as well as members of the general public, as they reveal the diversity and richness of academic lives and the passions that drive them. Viewers will have the opportunity to ask questions of each speaker.
