CAUT Call for Papers – Contract Academic Staff

by Faculty Association | Filed under April 2012.

CAUT’s contract academic staff committee has extended the deadline for a Call for Papers to June 30, 2012. The Committee is seeking submissions to an edited volume on the causes, experiences and consequences of the shift to greater reliance on contingent academic labour in the academy. They are interested in original research on how and why this has happened and its consequences for the working lives of all post-secondary academics and their students, as well as anecdotes and reflections on the experience of contract academics. The primary focus is Canada, but they are also interested in material from the US and UK for comparative purposes.

If you have research or reflections on this issue, please send an abstract of 500 words or less, an estimate of the length of the finished piece (3,000-4,000 words for reflections, 5,000-6,000 words for original research) and your full contact details to Robert Johnson, CAUT Professional Officer, (johnson AT caut.ca) by June 30, 2012. Authors of accepted proposals will be contacted with details and deadlines.
