Congress Takes Note
Inside Higher Ed
It's time for Congress to pay attention to the abuse of adjunct faculty members, and the way their poor working conditions impact not only them but also their students, says a new report from the House Education and the Workforce Committee. While the report largely endorses previous studies on the subject, "The Just-In-Time Professor" document marks the first time Congress has so formally acknowledged a situation that adjunct activists have long deemed exploitative.

Class Divide on Campus: Adjunct Professors Fight for Better Pay and Benefits

Marcia Newfield and Rosalind Petchesky are both professors at the City University of New York. They both have advanced degrees. They both have been teaching for decades and are in their seventies. But there's a big difference between the two: Petchesky is a distinguished professor, and Newfield is an adjunct. That means Newfield makes a fraction of what Petchesky makes.

Why Buy the Cow? An Open Letter to the Full-Time Faculty of American Colleges and Universities
I Will Start This Blog. I Mean It!
It is Saturday night, and as I write this, my young son sleeps; there is a stack of at least 140 papers stuffed into my Jane Eyre tote bag—the seams that cinch the handles to the bag are loosening, and will probably rip before I administer my last final in December. I bought it just this August, but as an adjunct professor this semester, I'm teaching twenty-two credits at three separate colleges.

Smartphones in the Classroom? Let Students Decide

Should students be allowed to use personal technology in the classroom? That's a contentious issue for many instructors, myself included.

The Myth of the Tortured Artist

No one blinked an eye when John Malkovich stooped to do Transformers 2. Jimi Hendrix's reputation as a rock god hasn't suffered for having been a session guitarist for the Isley Brothers.

So why is it so odious to some in the art world when an artist tries to make a little coin for himself?
