"Does the word 'intellectual' apply in the case of Dr. Jes Battis? That's a matter of judgment. So far he's been judged with great generosity. He's made his way upward from grant to grant. In graduate school, he received$24,000 in Simon Fraser University fellowships and $40,000, plus small travel grants, from the SSHRC. His postdoctoral grant last February, the one partly used for piercing and tattoo, was $82,000."
