For a while now, I have been sharing information from other sources about the trials and tribulations of part-time or contract academic faculty. Our conditions vary from country to country and even within any given country, but despite differences we also share much with one another. There are a number of good books out on the topic, and I am working on one of my own. Here, I hope to invite comments and conversations with other people in this situation (I have been a sessional lecturer for 22 years) but also with people who care about the quality of postsecondary education and care about social justice more generally. Right now this is a free site, so the occasional ad might appear, hope this is not a problem.
