I had this idea that I wanted to do something to organize adjuncts, but I didn’t know what else or who else was out there. Today I stumbled through a web of blogs that have given careful consideration to issues ranging from gender inequality, to the class war between part time and full time faculty, to the funding structure of sabbaticals.
Adjunct nation is a great place to start. It began as a way to give voice to the experiences of adjunct faculty who have been underrepresented by higher education media. As a collection of blogs it contains writing on everything from juggling work at multiple institutions, to humorous accounts of classroom frustrations, to critical accounts of the state of higher education and calls for a national union.
