So, many of you know the story of my R&R.
I don't actively tell people about this, but when they ask me I never hide the truth.
In the last 3 years I have been volunteering at XXXX project abroad. The have not invited me to be there next year, even though they have invited everyone else I know, including people who don't even have a BA. Basically, whoever pays good money, they can take part in the project.
But no. They don't want me to go back. I suspect two things: a) it's because I told them about the R&R last year, or b) it's because I am teaching at a university which is associated with a specific religion. This religion is against the religion of the country of the project... i.e. I am a victim of politics, since the local government will need to approve my licence to volunteer in the project. or c) the project co-ordinator, who absolutely hates me (he hasn't even got a masters degree but he has big money), has made everything possible to kick me out of the project.
Moral of the story....
I don't know... You tell me.
Have a good weekend!
It's not too surprising given the inherent resistance from certain faiths to the concept of human rights full stop if it contradicts centuries old religious tradition infused with misogyny. I imagine that these type of political considerations are not uncommon in certain fields.
I asked and received a generic reply.
Anyway. I have decided not to be disheartened and find an alternative project to get involved with. Maybe in another country...
After all, the results of my PhD should be out in the following weeks. Hopefully they will be positive, and then I can apply for more projects with more confidence.
