Lindsey McMaster’s Experience

Posted March 4th, 2015 By OCUFA

Academic Writing, Nipissing University

My proudest teaching moment:

I love it when students discover that writing essays does not have to be a painful slog through a host of rules and requirements, but can actually be a place to express themselves individually, intellectually, and even creatively.

My greatest research accomplishment:

The publication of my first book, about wage-earning women in Western Canada, which reviewers found to be “engaging, interesting, and a must-read for gender, history, and literary scholars.”

What are the challenges you face in your work? 

I once spent months preparing a SSHRC grant application, only to be told by the university (at the last moment) that no applications by contract academic staff would be forwarded for consideration. I’ve since presented the research at conferences and in a published article, but never as the book-length work I had envisioned.
