With heavy teaching loads and scarcity of secure jobs, contingent faculty understandably find it difficult to research and publish at rates necessary to find secure employment. In this workshop, which defines ‘contingency’ broadly to include all those working in uncertain conditions, participants will share professional strategies for navigating the job placement landscape. What kinds of scholarship (traditional, public, a mix) can position oneself as a visible scholar? Involvement in AAA sections and other forms of engagement will be part of the discussion.
