Scope and content

Series consists of records relating to Fellman's academic career at SFU, interactions with colleagues, involvement in university administration, and professional service.

Activities and events documented include Fellman's initial appointment; his salary, tenure and promotion reviews; grant and leave projects; participation in the Canadian Association of American Studies; the 1990 review of the editorial board of the Canadian Review of American Studies; and a proposal to establish a transitional college at SFU in the early 2000s. Series includes files relating to a well-publicized American plagiarism case, as well as various disputes at SFU including the 1979 AUCE strike, the 1997 harassment controversy, and the review of the search for the Wordsworth Chair in 2001.
