The Gig Academy and COVID-19: Implications for the Future

 

Tuesday, June 9
Program begins at 12 PM EST

 

In a recently published book, The Gig Academy Mapping Labor in the Neoliberal University, Adrianna Kezar and her co-authors describe and critique the restructuring of labor relations in higher education over the past few decades that included a massive increase in precarious employment in the form of contingent faculty positions, post-doctoral appointments, and the use graduate assistants for teaching and research.   Today, non-tenure track faculty make up 70% of college instructors nationwide.  During this webinar, the panel will be discussing the book's insights and recommendations as well as their relevance for post-pandemic colleges and universities.
