@TeachWrt @JeffreyKeefer We wanted to get a sense of  how people experience the invisibility of the issue of contingency in their work #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:05:33

@Comprof1 @TeachWrt @JeffreyKeefer Over the last few months, we’ve found there’s both similarities but also real differences. #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:07:43

@Comprof1 @TeachWrt @JeffreyKeefer Okay, I’m here.  Just to let you know, the last scene in the video preview is where I work! #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:09:02
@DrHepner I am a FT faculty member, but I also adjunct in a grad program. I really contextualizes Gappa and Leslie’s “Invisible Faculty” #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:09:14
@fulwilerm @Comprof1 @TeachWrt @JeffreyKeefer Similarities and differences in what ways? #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:09:25
@2255Films Afternoon everyone. I’ll be here lurking for the most part. Don’t mind me. #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:09:30
@Comprof1 @TeachWrt UAlbany. But I’ve worked at a number of colleges in the capital district (but not St. Rose!) #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:09:59
@fulwilerm @2255Films Welcome! Lurking fits right in with our theme of invisibility:) #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:10:56
@JeffreyKeefer Did everybody see the video Con Job by today’s #AdjunctChat discussants @fulwilerm and @TeachWrt 11/12/2013 16:11:05
@fulwilerm @Comprof1 @TeachWrt What a small world! #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:11:27
@Comprof1 @fulwilerm @TeachWrt @JeffreyKeefer Different reasons for adjuncting. similiar issues in not feeling equal to Tenured #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:11:28
@JeffreyKeefer RT @fulwilerm @2255Films Welcome! Lurking fits right in with our theme of invisibility:) #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:11:40
@Comprof1 @fulwilerm @TeachWrt @JeffreyKeefer For some, hoping to get Tenure track job (TT). Others like teaching and 2nd job. #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:12:16
@ProfessorF74 @JeffreyKeefer @fulwilerm @2255Films Good. I’m mostly lurking, too. #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:12:36
@Comprof1 @fulwilerm @TeachWrt @JeffreyKeefer Some have Phd’s. Some have professional experience. Many are frustrated. #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:12:47
@JeffreyKeefer RT @Eero_Laine RT @AdjunctAction: Check out #adjunctchat, happening now. #adjuncts #highered 11/12/2013 16:12:53
@fulwilerm @Comprof1 @TeachWrt @JeffreyKeefer Shows the many different reasons for adjuncting. And the many different kinds of adjuncts. #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:13:38
@Comprof1 @fulwilerm @TeachWrt don’t know if you are aware, but link to your sight was sent out to UAlbany faculty We thought good fit w/#AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:14:31
@TeachWrt .@Comprof1 yes. I think it’s imprtant that even those who want PT work acknowledge the inequity & work to rectify it. #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:14:34
@Comprof1 @fulwilerm @TeachWrt @JeffreyKeefer For those in your documentary was it the same? #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:15:20
@JeffreyKeefer @fulwilerm @Comprof1 @TeachWrt One thing I learned while engaging in #AdjunctChat and interacting is how diverse this population is. 11/12/2013 16:15:25
@JeffreyKeefer @TeachWrt @Comprof1 Can you talk a little about what you mean by and have in your mind when you mention “inequity” ? #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:16:32
@fulwilerm @Comprof1 @TeachWrt @JeffreyKeefer Almost everyone we interviwed was hoping for a full-time position. #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:16:49
@Comprof1 @TeachWrt I think feeling invisible is worse. Some places I’ve worked has made me feel welcome & equal #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:17:05
@DrJessicaLanger We’re HIRING a (paid) #socialmedia #marketing intern for the month of Jan! #altac #postac #ecrchat #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:17:58
@Comprof1 @TeachWrt One advantage to being PT is ability to leave if admin not good to contingents. #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:18:27
@TeachWrt .@JeffreyKeefer well the greatest and most concrete inequity is seen in the pay discrepancy but there is unequal status #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:18:30
@JeffreyKeefer @fulwilerm @Comprof1 @TeachWrt Interesting, so in that way being an #adjunct means somebody who did not get tenure? #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:18:33
@fulwilerm @JeffreyKeefer @TeachWrt @Comprof1 Among usual suspects are pay, space, and benefits. But also access to faculty governance. #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:18:55
@Comprof1 @TeachWrt In our area, at least, adjuncts are always needed last minute. Still silent though. #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:19:10
@JeffreyKeefer @TeachWrt Yes, though the pay inequity also involves levels of commitment on both sides #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:19:27
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @TeachWrt I’ve seen more & more expectations of adjuncts over last 20 yrs. Today I do same work but at 1/4 pay #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:21:05
@JeffreyKeefer @fulwilerm @TeachWrt @Comprof1 I have always worked FT as I can not afford to work only as an #AdjunctChat #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:21:09
@TeachWrt .@JeffreyKeefer #AdjunctChat you mentioned the diversity of this population so we also include people who would never have the opp 4 tenure 11/12/2013 16:21:30
@fulwilerm @Comprof1 @TeachWrt Many admin I talk with are sympathetic but feel their hands are tied. #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:21:48
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @fulwilerm @TeachWrt I tend to wonder what this means for the discipline and how knowledge is created + disseminated #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:22:36
@Comprof1 @fulwilerm @JeffreyKeefer @TeachWrt Can you elaborate about the governence? Were there differences between type of institute? #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:22:37
@melovell @celloandbow I don’t think I can today but will check the #adjunctchat hashtag later to catch up. 11/12/2013 16:23:01
@ProfessorF74 @fulwilerm @Comprof1 @TeachWrt Do these admins keep adding provosts, vice provosts, etc. positions while overusing #adjuncts? #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:23:43
@Comprof1 @fulwilerm @TeachWrt What role did research play? Were there people doing admin work for free so they could have > voice? #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:23:45
@JeffreyKeefer @TeachWrt Not having the opportunity for tenure because it is not available may be different from those who don’t opp for it #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:24:15
@fulwilerm @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @TeachWrt We spoke with adjuncts from wide variety of institutions. None had role in any governance. #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:24:17
@LydiaFieldSnow1 @fulwilerm @TeachWrt  #adjunctchat I found you! MECCA! I am so happy to know of this resource. I have been working to organize adjuncts 11/12/2013 16:24:33
@JeffreyKeefer I wonder how #adjunct work is effected by the sheer explosion in practitioner degrees and practitioner doctorates #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:24:43
@TeachWrt #AdjunctChat do any of the lurkers want to get in on the conversation about the range in types of adjuncts & feelings about inquiry? 11/12/2013 16:24:46
@fulwilerm @LydiaFieldSnow1 @TeachWrt Welcome!! We’d love to hear what you’ve done! #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:25:32
@JeffreyKeefer @fulwilerm @Comprof1 @TeachWrt Let me play advocatus diaboli — why should part-time workers have a role in FT governance? #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:25:52
@JeffreyKeefer @LydiaFieldSnow1 Welcome to #adjunctchat! @fulwilerm @TeachWrt 11/12/2013 16:26:40
@Comprof1 @fulwilerm @TeachWrt I worked at 1 college where adjuncts were part of curriculum dev & schoolwide training 1/sem (paid extra) #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:26:57
@JeffreyKeefer @ProfessorF74 Glad you were able to make it to #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:27:08
@DrHepner I am bombarded with law school grads who are struggling in an over saturated market!  Don’t go to law school!  @JeffreyKeefer  #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:27:20
@TeachWrt .@JeffreyKeefer #AdjunctChat it’s completely dependent on that – a vicious capitalist cycle. programs turn out workers 2 use on the cheap 11/12/2013 16:27:23
@LydiaFieldSnow1 @Comprof1  #adjunctchat Yes I am creating curriculum in music ed department. The students respect me because they know I rely on real work 11/12/2013 16:27:29
@JeffreyKeefer @melovell Great; you can always reply to #adjunctchat outside of our live chat here; the keyword tag is always open! 11/12/2013 16:27:48
@Comprof1 @fulwilerm @JeffreyKeefer @TeachWrt Only place where I felt adjuncts were thought of as colleagues. EVERYONE was paid low! #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:28:01
@JeffreyKeefer @LydiaFieldSnow1 What do you mean you rely on real work?  @Comprof1 #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:28:44
@LydiaFieldSnow1 @JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1  #adjunctchat I taught music in schools to children for many years before being hired to teach music ed classes 11/12/2013 16:29:29
@fulwilerm .@JeffreyKeefer TT faculty are now only half of the professoriate on any given campus.  So decisions are made by the few #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:29:32
@JeffreyKeefer @TeachWrt Yes, #adjunct work is similar to Wal-Mart or cheap Chinese imports; as much to get for paying a little #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:29:44
@Comprof1 @TeachWrt @JeffreyKeefer Did you find some fields worse than others (you mentioned comp/eng & foreign language in film) #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:29:50
@LydiaFieldSnow1 @JeffreyKeefer @TeachWrt  #adjunctchat I agree. Walmart ad on facebook to not shop. I will spend my Thanksgiving weekend grading without pay 11/12/2013 16:30:39
@Comprof1 @fulwilerm @JeffreyKeefer Even those w/ unions because many adjuncts don’t join unions. #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:30:48
@JeffreyKeefer @fulwilerm Isn’t that how all organizations work; decisions made by the few? #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:30:49
@JeffreyKeefer @fulwilerm Even amongst TT faculty, they still take their marching orders from their own few in power #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:31:19
@Comprof1 @fulwilerm @JeffreyKeefer So how do you think contingents can find their voice? #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:31:19
@fulwilerm .@Comprof1 It’s clear from the data we’ve looked at that the humanities is leading the way! #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:31:27
@JeffreyKeefer @fulwilerm In many ways the #adjunct issue I see becoming increasingly important revolves around unionization of some sort #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:32:15
@LydiaFieldSnow1 So energized by your work on twitter. It has been worst fall semester. 4 classes 4 preps, pay cut. less credit hours and 83%! #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:32:29
@TeachWrt .@JeffreyKeefer #AdjunctChat perhaps. But higher Ed has often claimed transparency & “shared gov” should mean just that – democracy not corp 11/12/2013 16:32:52
@fulwilerm @JeffreyKeefer Taxation without representation? W/o a voice, adjuncts have no role in institutions that rely on them. #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:33:17
@Comprof1 @fulwilerm Why? Is it because they aren’t “bringing in money”? Or have their departments been cut? Or oversupply? #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:33:22
@LydiaFieldSnow1 email from union warning us not to have students sign petition in our classes, and it sounded like she was chummy with provost. #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:33:33
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @fulwilerm I am not sure if there is a single notion of what “finding their voice” means given diversity + experience #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:34:09
@fulwilerm .@JeffreyKeefer And TT faculty remain in an ever shrinking bubble. #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:34:27
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @fulwilerm Unions are a start, but contingent need to feel they can point out inequity w/out losing job. #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:34:31
@LydiaFieldSnow1 I was on committee to build shared governance at Instructors Voice. I can share our statement with you. It was voted down. #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:34:39
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @fulwilerm Really the same in all industries today. My sister is in government & same problem. #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:35:10
@fulwilerm @JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 Sure. But without any form of representation at schools w/o unions, there’s only silence. #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:35:28
@JeffreyKeefer Note to self: include the term “contingents” in the #adjunctchat header and “About” page. 11/12/2013 16:35:39
@DrHepner Oh, please don’t, Jennifer!  The law is a horrible place to be these days.@TeachWrt @JeffreyKeefer #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:35:44
@LydiaFieldSnow1 I chaired the committee and met with instructors and profs in big meetings and read a statement. Then the cuts came in the fall #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:35:46
@fulwilerm .@LydiaFieldSnow1 I’d be interested in seeing this. And who voted it down? #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:36:19
@JeffreyKeefer @LydiaFieldSnow1 I cannot but think that the notion of shared governance is not as equal and rosy as it seems #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:36:35
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @fulwilerm Tenure means you can speak up. Non tenured means you can be fired at will w/out any reason. #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:36:40
@LydiaFieldSnow1 the full time faculty were only allowed to vote on it. #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:36:40
@LydiaFieldSnow1 I mean tenure and tenure track faculty. We had over half of the faculty who wanted instructors able to vote in deparmt meetings #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:37:25
@AdjunctYoda @JeffreyKeefer Yes, yes, yes: “contingent” covers a wider spectrum (e.g., untenured faculty on multi-year contracts).  #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:37:29
@fulwilerm .@LydiaFieldSnow1 I was going to guess that but didn’t want to be too cynical. #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:37:42
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @fulwilerm Adjuncts should be able to ask for raise, job security, input in curriculum, access to resources. #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:38:02
@fulwilerm @JeffreyKeefer @LydiaFieldSnow1 Ain’t nothing rosy about shared governance. But without it, there’s nada. #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:38:33
@JeffreyKeefer @TeachWrt @fulwilerm Given your work and video, is this tied to a research project you are engaging in as well? #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:38:54
@LydiaFieldSnow1 president said to me in elevator after the first senate meeting”I’m sorry your load was cut. But we all have to make a living.” #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:38:55
@LydiaFieldSnow1 And then I quit senate and found you all on twitter. Wow the light bulbs are going crazy in my brain. #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:39:22
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @fulwilerm Why should PT employees hired for a short-term contract be entitled to anything beyond what is offered? #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:39:44
@LydiaFieldSnow1 I have written not one but two petitions. I have made new friends. I don’t feel crazy any more.  #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:39:52
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @LydiaFieldSnow1 Is if you get paid for it As i said, uni I worked at had sem meeting on policies & PT was paid. #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:40:30
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @fulwilerm Given more folks with advanced degrees than positions for them, it seems an employer’s dream scenario #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:40:50
@TeachWrt @JeffreyKeefer @fulwilerm the film is the culmination of / vehicle for our research and a hopefully a resource for advocacy #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:40:59
@JeffreyKeefer RT @LydiaFieldSnow1 I have written not one but two petitions. I have made new friends. I don’t feel crazy any more.  #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:41:03
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @fulwilerm Because they are doing the same work as TT. I am at least & > 2 semesters is not short term #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:41:54
@LydiaFieldSnow1 @TeachWrt Would love to bring your movie to Northeastern Illinois University. Big justice studies program.  #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:42:10
@TeachWrt .@JeffreyKeefer #AdjunctChat it is employers dream scenario, so what can we do to change it. Lots of unethical scenarios support the system 11/12/2013 16:43:29
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @fulwilerm Just b/c they have degree doesn’t mean they can teach. Rather than hire warm bodies hire instructors #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:43:29
@fulwilerm @LydiaFieldSnow1 @TeachWrt The full-length film will be available in the spring via open access digital press. #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:43:59
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @fulwilerm They may not need them every semester but better ed outcomes w/ long term adjuncts #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:44:05
@JeffreyKeefer @AdjunctYoda Indeed, it also includes untenured faculty on short-term contracts #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:44:33
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @fulwilerm If they are long term working with students, they should have voice in curriculum direction in dept #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:44:45
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @fulwilerm I wonder how much evidence there is to support better outcomes with long- vs. short-term #adjuncts #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:45:22
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @fulwilerm Also can bring expertise from outside of academia. Should be compensated for that #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:45:26
@fulwilerm @Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Absolutely. It’s @NewFacMajority’s mantra that “teaching conditions=student learning conditions” #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:45:27

@Comprof1 @fulwilerm @LydiaFieldSnow1 @TeachWrt Have you submitted to WMHT’s local documentary comp to get greater audience? #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:46:47
@JeffreyKeefer @TeachWrt @fulwilerm That seems a great contribution to the growing #adjunct discussion #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:47:15
@fulwilerm @JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 I think it’s a retention issue. Or should be. Support teachers to help students persists and thrive. #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:47:19
@JeffreyKeefer @TeachWrt @fulwilerm What led you two to begin making the video? #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:47:36

@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @fulwilerm And this is the problem No evidence No study No exit interview why adjuncts leave. Only student evals #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:48:47
@JeffreyKeefer @fulwilerm @Comprof1 @NewFacMajority Makes sense, though as an advocatus diaboli, I wonder if there is evidence to support it #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:49:48
@VCVaile sorry to be late – interruptions #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:51:03
@fulwilerm .@JeffreyKeefer It started as a video response to Comp/Rhet PD video “Take 20” w/top scholars. We wanted to hear from adjuncts #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:51:44
@JeffreyKeefer @fulwilerm @Comprof1 @NewFacMajority Perhaps evidence is something to come from some of us? I want to do #adjunct research #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:51:54

@JeffreyKeefer @fulwilerm I found it fully engaging; so glad you shared it. Can’t wait to hear about more! #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:54:08
@fulwilerm .@JeffreyKeefer The more we talked with ad/con faculty, the more complex the issue grew. We wanted to peel onion. Still trying #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:54:09
@LydiaFieldSnow1 the person who said that was a lawyer who taught in Justice Studies dept. Without her the students would be lost. She knew! #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:54:46
@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer @fulwilerm @NewFacMajority But where will research end up? Hate to say it mary margaret’s death did more to help #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:54:54
@JeffreyKeefer @fulwilerm Did this come out of your disciplinary perspective, or an issue of passion? #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:55:07
@TeachWrt .@JeffreyKeefer @NewFacMajority we agree. Studies have been done & published  bur good data is hard 2 come by. #adjunctchat #research 11/12/2013 16:56:06

@JeffreyKeefer This has been a wonderful #adjunctchat and I really wish I could remain longer, but I have to leave the office and go and #adjunct teach! 11/12/2013 16:58:07
@fulwilerm @JeffreyKeefer I’m WPA of a small writing program & work directly with ad/con instructors. Grew out of a disciplinary passion. #AdjunctChat 11/12/2013 16:58:29
@TeachWrt .@JeffreyKeefer for me – both – passion about labor issues and anger at my own field leading the way in casualization of labor #adjunctchat 11/12/2013 16:58:29
