Countering Contingency Conference on Organizing Adjuncts Pittsburgh April 5-7

COUNTERING CONTINGENCY: TEACHING, SCHOLARSHIP, AND CREATIVITY IN THE AGE OF THE ADJUNCT
A conference sponsored by the Adjunct Faculty Association of the United Steelworkers
April 5-7, 2013

Inspired by the effort to organize by adjunct faculty at Duquesne University and the emerging discussion about adjunct faculty issues nationwide, this conference offers an opportunity to think more deeply about the state of contingent, non-tenure-stream faculty in the Pittsburgh region's colleges and universities. Contingent labor constitutes the majority of faculty, yet adjunct faculty are the lowest paid and most overburdened higher education workers. Adjunct faculty represent the foundation of academic experiences at the undergraduate level and offer irreplaceable interactions with students. They are artists, scholars, researchers, and examples of inspired teaching. This conference is an invitation to imagine the answers to crucial questions raised by adjunct faculty's tenuous position: How can we use what we know to create a more sustainable and equitable labor and educational system, one that will benefit everyone at the university? What change is most needed? What does it mean to constitute the new faculty majority at a college or university? What are the first and best steps to improve the conditions of adjunct faculty's labor and students' learning?
