Online conference; in-person meetup

Hello, Hidden Scholars!

Here’s a notice from a colleague: Adjunct Action will be be hosting a conversation about women and adjunct teaching with Sarah Kendzior, writer with Al Jazeera English and the Chronicle of Higher Education, this Friday, August 29th, at 2pm EDT, in a Google Hangout space. You can find a link here:

(Disregard the date on the site – it’s postponed to August 29 from the 22nd.)

The topic – women and adjuncts – makes me wonder what the special issues for men might be. A discussion for another time, perhaps?

Adjunct Action, which is a union project, will also be hosting an “organizer boot camp” in September.

Meanwhile, it’s time for a meetup.

On Tuesday, September 9, 7-8:30 p.m., let’s return to The Roost in Northampton (corner of Bridge St. and Market St.). Table space can be a little tight, but they have everything: coffee, beer, food. Drop by any time.

Finally: we welcome comments and updates on your situations, needs, and ideas.

Best wishes for the new academic year, the job searches, the current and future projects, the general state of higher education, and the world of scholarship.
