Guys! Guys guys guys. Next week I’m doing a live Google chat with Adjunct Action (I think they know I took more than my share of buttons and pins at their St. Louis Symposium and now I owe them–guilty as charged!). I have a lot of things broiling in my brain already, but I want to hear from you. How do adjuncts empower ourselves to take back the career for which we are trained, and which (like all careers) deserves a dignified wage? (How) do we appeal to those on the tenure track? Do we favor a unified approach with the tenured faculty? If so, how do we get them to help us–or even to care about us as scholars and teachers (enough, for example, so that they do not attempt to discount our point of view by sneeringly referring to us as “occasional” college professors, ahem)? OR, do we say fuck it about them lifeboaters, and assume that when their jobs all get swallowed up by Financial Exigency in a few years they’ll join us without us having to kiss their asses? Who is our movement? What is our movement? What can we do to (re)-create the field? Please get talkin’ in the comments and I will address all of your issues during our chat (where I also hope you’ll be!).
