Om Academic Apartheid

In response to institutionalized oppression, professional disregard, and overt lack of agency, a silent majority speaks out. Academic Apartheid: Waging the Adjunct War responds to the pervasive "adjunct for hire" trend with a collection of poignant international essays covering a wide depth and breadth of experience (overseas, online, small private colleges, large state institutions) while uncovering the challenges implicit with living and working as an academic on the borders of the ivory tower. Because colleges and universities have continually increased their adjunct workforce over the last decade, turning a once- trend into an explosive and exploitive standard practice in higher education, adjunct employment practices often occur outside the boundaries of professionalism; too commonly are academics hired into teaching positions without the benefits of job security, adequate wages, health benefits, or even minimal professional resources, such as office space, a desk, or even use of a copier. What does this mean for the climate in higher education? Determined to address the ramifications of this shift, Academic Apartheid documents the agency and experiences of adjuncts always already subsumed by this classist shift.
