Visiting Faculty

by
P.D. Lesko

I WANT TO begin this month’s column by expressing my sincere
hope that this issue of the magazine finds all of our readers
and their families safe and sound. In July and August, I visited
New York to meet with marketing representatives from many
of the academic and scholarly publishing houses located throughout
Manhattan. I feared most, though, for my friends at the Modern
Language Association, their new offices located just a few
blocks from the site of the disaster. I’ve been told that
the MLA’s staff was evacuated without serious injury, and
their office building has since been deemed structurally sound.

I also want to talk a bit about this issue of the magazine.
When I sent the magazine’s staff and free-lance writers out
to find out more about visiting faculty in America, I had
high hopes that they would come back with some surprises.
Jennifer Berkshire reported back to me during the process
of writing her feature piece that there just weren’t any statistical
data out there which would pinpoint the exact number of visiting
faculty in this country. We decided, then, that she would
collect anecdotal information. My hypothesis in devoting an
entire issue
