Do you qualify?

of course he does!

Hi Paul,
Fortunately or unfortunately (depending on how you see it), I don't qualify. The position is for Associate Prof or Full Prof - I don't have the qualifications for that - still lack the number of years of teaching, publications, and supervision of research students! If the position is for Assistant Prof, then I may.

I was going to ask you what in the world is 'queer studies' until I tried my luck googling it and found my answer at Wikipedia. Really queer. I will be more slow now in labeling someone as 'queer'. How some words changed in meaning over the years.

Kar Yong said...

Hi SP, queer as it may sound, gay is no longer what it meant too, and it may be "happy" for some, and certainly not for others!

So that's one option that is closed for you. :-(
