Academic Labor and Contingent Faculty Committee

Call for Proposals

Co-sponsored session with the Class, Religion, and Theology Unit

We invite proposals that address any aspect of the structure of academic labor or the experiences of contingent faculty, within the discipline of religious and theological studies or in the humanities/academy more broadly. We are especially interested in papers that 

  • explore the various forms that contingent academic labor takes and the different experiences of economic precarity and institutional and/or guild status they entail; or 
  • name and confront (income, power, recognition, or other) barriers to solidarity between contingent and tenured/tenure-eligible faculty and/or between faculty and other higher ed laborers and explore possibilities of fomenting solidarity.
