L.A. Wade has been the Registrar and Sessional Lecturer for the University of Toronto's Transitional Year Programme for the past 10 years.  L.A. is currently pursuing a place at the Ph.D. table where she intends to explore themes of ‘fitting in’ and 'belonging'.   Her developing theory, ‘Symbolic Proximity” asks questions about the way we measure our distance between where we are and where we want to be.  The theory will explore the strategies we employ to legitimize our place within society which are informed by implied and internalized ideals of power that socialize us toward symbolic social markers of respectability and success.
