Caught in the Adjunct Trap
Hose, Linda; Ford, E. J.
Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, v7 n1 p45-56 Spr 2014
Based on personal experiences garnered through years of adjunct instruction, the authors explore the challenges associated with working in academia without the guarantees of a long-term contract or tenure. Further, adjuncts are desperate to accept any position that is remunerative and this willingness undermines contract negotiation leverage of every member of the academic teaching community.
