2018 RSA Workshop for Contingent Faculty

Hilton, Minneapolis, Minnesota

2018 RSA Workshop for Contingent Faculty
 
Thursday, May 31, 2018
 
The primary focus of this session is helping contingent faculty find and/or enhance their ability to do research/scholarship. Depending on the needs of participants, we can help think through issues such as: developing a trajectory that's manageable given heavy teaching loads; accessing research funds, even on campuses that withhold them from contingent faculty; establishing collaborations and networks for scholarly activity; choosing and framing scholarly activities in pursuit of and independently of tenure-track positions; taking advantage of flexibility that contingent positions afford; and more. Secondarily, given time and interest, the facilitators are experienced labor activists and organizers who can help contingent faculty strategize and advocate for improved working conditions.
