The Sessional Lecturer as Migrant Labourer.
Mysyk, Avis
Canadian Journal of Higher Education, v31 n3 p73-91 2001
Based on personal ethnographic experience of "becoming the phenomenon" of migrant laborer in Canada's postsecondary education system, critically examines three anthropological perspectives--the neoclassical, the historical structuralist, and the neo-Marxist--on labor migration. Argues that both migrant laborers and sessional lecturers have become cheap and mobile reserve armies of labor for the capitalist economy. (EV)
