@rcbatp #adjunctchat — Third thing was really so simple it shocks me — maybe this “distracted” and “frenetic” state was how I was being controlled 2/11/2014 16:05
@JeffreyKeefer @rcbatp I think sending a few Tweets to introduce / frame your thinking and some background is a great approach #AdjunctChat 2/11/2014 16:05

@UpstateAdjuncts #adjunctchat greetings from #UpstateAmerica, psyched to talk about building a strong movement for #adjuncts 2/11/2014 16:05

@LitProfSuz Good sunny, but cold afternoon from WI #adjunctchat 2/11/2014 16:06

@Comprof1 @rcbatp I’m following the chat but am working on some other things at the same time #adjunctchat 2/11/2014 16:07
@rcbatp #adjunctchat — okay — that’s the core of what I wanted to talk with you today about. https://t.co/aOikIznpya are some resources 2/11/2014 16:07
@JeffreyKeefer @UpstateAdjuncts @SBowerMurphy Welcome to #AdjunctChat 2/11/2014 16:07
@IshaiBarnoy #AdjunctChat @rcbatp Yes, I think a lot of us are having the same experience. But then, some of us view it critically & want to grow within. 2/11/2014 16:07

@DrHepner Wow! Interesting and powerful observation! I’m really interested in the “distracted” portion. #adjunctchat 2/11/2014 16:09
@JeffreyKeefer #AdjunctChat has started with @rcbatp talking about his overview for how he saw his state as an #adjunct with issues around control. 2/11/2014 16:09
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 You are always welcome #AdjunctChat 2/11/2014 16:09

@4KM @UpstateAdjuncts IF there were a major adjunct exodus from academia, what might that mean? Who would staY go? #adjunctchat 2/11/2014 16:11
@IshaiBarnoy #Adjunctchat @UpstateAdjuncts Not to say PhD’s aren’t exploited as well. Just that some of us feel like another version of “unskilled.” 2/11/2014 16:11
@rcbatp #adjunctchat — the moment I said “I don’t have any control” immediately I saw places where I did exert control — especially re: students 2/11/2014 16:11
@IshaiBarnoy @rcbatp @DrHepner Don’t forget the #Adjunctchat hashtag! 2/11/2014 16:12
@4KM Does distraction relate to increasingly common learning-at-a-distance and what our desktops look like? #adjunctchat 2/11/2014 16:12
@JeffreyKeefer @rcbatp Thanks; listening to the 2 recordings you shared in the background right now #AdjunctChat 2/11/2014 16:12
@Comprof1 @4KM @UpstateAdjuncts I think there’d be greater demand for “teaching students” not on Phd or even Master’s level. #adjunctchat 2/11/2014 16:12
@JeffreyKeefer @rcbatp What brought on these 3 states? #AdjunctChat 2/11/2014 16:12
@JeffreyKeefer @UpstateAdjuncts Agreed; making these decisions and then acting upon them is empowerment itself #AdjunctChat 2/11/2014 16:13
@DrHepner I began as an online adjunct and didn’t know I wasn’t a real faculty member for two years… my first visit to the campus! #adjunctchat 2/11/2014 16:13
@Comprof1 @4KM @UpstateAdjuncts My son has a friend who is teaching a course at the school he is attending as an undergrad honors student #adjunctchat 2/11/2014 16:13

@cookingandcomp @JeffreyKeefer @Melissa_Venable @Comprof1 @fabianbanga busy day! Looking forward to #AdjunctChat transcript! 2/11/2014 16:17
@JeffreyKeefer Remember to use the #AdjunctChat tag for today’s chat especially as this has implications for #adjuncts #PostAc #AltAc #ECRchat and #PHDchat 2/11/2014 16:17

@JeffreyKeefer @rcbatp Can you talk more about the discipline where you were, and how that continues (or not) in your life and work now? #AdjunctChat 2/11/2014 16:19
@rcbatp #adjunctchat — This is still very new to me (twitter-chat) — thanks for the patience! 2/11/2014 16:19
@UpstateAdjuncts Also – some adjuncts might leave academia and go into political organizing, would help build skills to org ourselves too #adjunctchat 2/11/2014 16:19

@JeffreyKeefer @rcbatp Can you also talk about the 2 pieces on Foucault you shared in the DropBox open for today’s #AdjunctChat https://t.co/mpClDcHNhU 2/11/2014 16:20
@IshaiBarnoy .@LitProfSuz @4KM My apologies — elisions are a risk of the medium. I meant MA’s (some non-“academic”) in contrast to PhD’s. #Adjunctchat 2/11/2014 16:20
@LitProfSuz @rcbatp @Comprof1 As a TA,had a union & benefits.Was adjunct at another school. Little pay, no benefits. Both as grad student #adjunctchat 2/11/2014 16:21
@rcbatp @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat — 2011-2013 built a production unit in NYC and LA for stage, screen, and music opportunities — 2/11/2014 16:21

@rcbatp @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat I wanted to bring Foucault into the conversation because he shows across his work that power is not stable 2/11/2014 16:22
@rcbatp @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat Foucault dismantles assumptions of power which relate directly to what we know and how we know what we know 2/11/2014 16:22
@JeffreyKeefer @UpstateAdjuncts Seems you see connections with academic work and #PostAc or #AltAc? #AdjunctChat 2/11/2014 16:22
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz @rcbatp Today as adjunct, I actually have less security/opportunity than I did as TA in same university. #adjunctchat 2/11/2014 16:23
@rcbatp @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat — Applying Foucault (and others like Deleuze, Derrida, Spivak, postcolonial) to my situation was very helpful 2/11/2014 16:23
@Comprof1 @LitProfSuz @rcbatp As TA had access to research and research funding. I don’t as an adjunct. #adjunctchat 2/11/2014 16:23
@4KM @Comprof1 @rcbatp Especially when bright, energized people create numerous conversation threads #adjunctchat 2/11/2014 16:23
@JeffreyKeefer @rcbatp Lots of people seem to quote Foucault without having read them. Suggestions for newbies out there? #AdjunctChat 2/11/2014 16:24
@rcbatp @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat — increasing the flow between traditional higher ed and #postac and #altac is a fantastic tactic 4 empowerment 2/11/2014 16:24
@rcbatp @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat — not an either/or thing for me anymore — stay or go from higher ed — it’s a both/and moment 4 me 2/11/2014 16:25

@JeffreyKeefer @rcbatp What brought you to HE in the first place? #AdjunctChat 2/11/2014 16:26
@JeffreyKeefer BTW, what brought everybody here in #AdjunctChat now to your work in HE? 2/11/2014 16:26
@rcbatp @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat — re: Foucault — I’d start with any of his lectures in essential works 2/11/2014 16:26
@Comprof1 @rcbatp @JeffreyKeefer You make a good point which is true with all “temp” workers. #adjunctchat. Start w/ playing game, but doesn’t work. 2/11/2014 16:26
@JeffreyKeefer Let’s face it, working in any capacity in HE does not seem it is primarily for the money! So, what else was it? #AdjunctChat 2/11/2014 16:27
@JeffreyKeefer @rcbatp Great; perhaps a link to a volume or article or book later would be helpful. Hey, I am a library hound #AdjunctChat 2/11/2014 16:27

@JeffreyKeefer I know organizing challenges the HE power dynamic for #adjuncts, but is anybody satisfied with what has been accomplished? #AdjunctChat 2/11/2014 16:32
@IshaiBarnoy .@rcbatp It’s not quite toppling on its own, though, I don’t think. Not quite yet. #AdjunctChat 2/11/2014 16:32
@rcbatp @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat — that’s the trick — KAFKA MOMENT — there’s no one in the castle, we make the castle 2/11/2014 16:32
@JeffreyKeefer @4KM @Comprof1 @rcbatp Yes, sometimes using Q1 or Q2 and replies helps, though not always #AdjunctChat 2/11/2014 16:33
@rcbatp @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat — it’s not stable, in other words — I started to see the “innumerable points” where power was exerted on me 2/11/2014 16:33
@JeffreyKeefer @LitProfSuz @Comprof1 @rcbatp I sometimes think that having research access is all of what keeps some people involved #AdjunctChat 2/11/2014 16:34

@Comprof1 @JeffreyKeefer Adjuncts need to find their voice and work within the system to change the system or leave for better sit #adjunctchat 2/11/2014 16:36
@JeffreyKeefer @UpstateAdjuncts Can you talk about how you see #AltAc and #adjunct struggles as the same? #AdjunctChat 2/11/2014 16:36
@IshaiBarnoy @rcbatp @JeffreyKeefer So maybe govt pulling on #HigherEd strings is what will reveal the king with no clothes on, you mean? #AdjunctChat 2/11/2014 16:36
@fabianbanga @rcbatp @IshaiBarnoy w about discuses constitute madness in relation to a particular historical time / in relation to #adjunctchat struggle 2/11/2014 16:36
@UpstateAdjuncts .@CUNYadjuncts not getting paid on time has driven some of us to leave academia – frustrating #adjunctchat 2/11/2014 16:36
@rcbatp @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat — the research draw of HE does keep many people enslaved * but what about ComColl where research doesn’t matter 2/11/2014 16:36
@JeffreyKeefer @rcbatp Thank you for the reference #AdjunctChat 2/11/2014 16:36
@JeffreyKeefer @fabianbanga Welcome! #AdjunctChat 2/11/2014 16:36
@AdjunctChat RT @researchwhisper: Very fast & furious #adjunctchat happening right now. Relevant for #altac & #postac, too. 2/11/2014 16:37
@rcbatp @IshaiBarnoy #adjunctchat — the naked flaccid power of HE can be seen without gov’t pressure but external pressure of any kind will help 2/11/2014 16:37
@rcbatp @fabianbanga #adjunctchat — So so so tempting to hijack this conversation re: power, madness, and knowledge . . . but I won’t (wink) 2/11/2014 16:38
@AdjunctChat The overview for today’s #AdjunctChat (currently underway) with @rcbatp is at http://t.co/RjurB735rL 2/11/2014 16:38
@Comprof1 @rcbatp @JeffreyKeefer Depends on the CC. Those in my area require “outside funds” coming in which can be reserach or outreach #adjunctchat 2/11/2014 16:38
@IshaiBarnoy .@rcbatp Yes, well, what I meant to say was “… barring a revolution.” #AdjunctChat 2/11/2014 16:39
@JeffreyKeefer @IshaiBarnoy @rcbatp More stable than most in what way? #AdjunctChat 2/11/2014 16:39
@JeffreyKeefer @4KM Glad you were able to join; thanks! #AdjunctChat 2/11/2014 16:39
@fabianbanga @rcbatp @IshaiBarnoy so #adjunct struggle = madness from those in power (academia, tenured faculty, administration, etc) #adjunctchat 2/11/2014 16:39

@JeffreyKeefer @rcbatp Sounds like invitation to transformative learning? #AdjunctChat 2/11/2014 16:40

@JeffreyKeefer RT @rcbatp: @IshaiBarnoy #adjunctchat — Until I was able to look at why I was *so* miserable, it went beyond “adjunctcy” — it revealed… 2/11/2014 16:40
@rcbatp @fabianbanga #adjunctchat — this is what I experienced directly and I see happening with increased intensity 2/11/2014 16:41
@JeffreyKeefer Today’s #AdjunctChat intrigues me as it brings the humanities into practice when navigating the #adjunct experience #PostAc #AltAc 2/11/2014 16:41
@deborahbrian RT @researchwhisper: MT @rcbatp: #adjunctchat — increasing the flow between traditional higher ed and #postac and #altac is a fantastic ta… 2/11/2014 16:41
@rcbatp @IshaiBarnoy #adjunctchat — What would constitute a revolution in HE? 2/11/2014 16:42

@JeffreyKeefer RT @AdjunctChat: The overview for today’s #AdjunctChat (currently underway) with @rcbatp is at http://t.co/4UtA7rpPgt 2/11/2014 16:42
@rcbatp @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat . . . it revealed so many points of empowerment in that moment — curriculum and student advising for example 2/11/2014 16:42
@IshaiBarnoy .@rcbatp In modest terms? And yeah, we’ve seen some of these — student strikes. Or maybe something more widespread. #AdjunctChat 2/11/2014 16:43
@JeffreyKeefer @rcbatp How did your interaction with your students change as a result of your personal shift re: #HigherEducation? #AdjunctChat 2/11/2014 16:44
@rcbatp #adjunctchat — let’s return to the overview — thank you Jeffrey 🙂 — specifically how to build alliances . . 2/11/2014 16:44
@IshaiBarnoy .@JeffreyKeefer @rcbatp Hmm. Gotta think about that one. Maybe we’re in the midst of a dramatic collapse. #AdjunctChat 2/11/2014 16:44
@UpstateAdjuncts @JeffreyKeefer since ac labor market is saturated, some PhDs should go #altac – but those that go political can help w activism #adjunctchat 2/11/2014 16:44
@rcbatp @IshaiBarnoy #adjunctchat — Student walk outs imply an alliance between students adn professors I’m not convinced has been established. 2/11/2014 16:45
@Comprof1 @rcbatp What would like to see change in HE that would help both adjuncts and students? #adjunctchat 2/11/2014 16:45
@fabianbanga @IshaiBarnoy @rcbatp tried in previews tweet / struggle in confrontational adjunct discourses seeing as sociological madness #adjunctchat 2/11/2014 16:45
@IshaiBarnoy Well, #AdjunctChat folks, I gotta go prepare for my class. Talk to you again sometime. 2/11/2014 16:45
@UpstateAdjuncts @JeffreyKeefer both are two options that don’t force us to not get degrees in things that aren’t cash cows for unis #adjunctchat 2/11/2014 16:46
@rcbatp @UpstateAdjuncts #adjunctchat — exactly — increasing the flow, deterritorializing the either/or of ADJUNCTorNOTHING can help more ppl 2/11/2014 16:46
@fabianbanga @LitProfSuz @rcbatp @IshaiBarnoy indeed #adjunctchat 2/11/2014 16:46
@Comprof1 @rcbatp I see things that can happen at my own school w/out any additional funding. #adjunctchat But need to get adjuncts speaking 2/11/2014 16:46
@rcbatp @IshaiBarnoy #adjunctchat — nice to chat with you again! Keep the conversation going anytime @rcbatp or #adjunctuprising 2/11/2014 16:46
@fabianbanga @LitProfSuz @rcbatp @IshaiBarnoy However, you will find many alliances if we see the struggle from a labor perspective #adjunctchat 2/11/2014 16:47
@rcbatp @Comprof1 #adjunctchat — I’d love faculty & students 2 see the strength in their alliance given how everyone benefits when learning is A+ 2/11/2014 16:48
@JeffreyKeefer @IshaiBarnoy Thanks for joining; I need to run at 5:00 for my #SCPSRPM course @NYUSCPS just after out #AdjunctChat ends. 2/11/2014 16:48

@rcbatp @Comprof1 #adjunctchat — 2009-2011 adjunct union drive (success!!) showed the power of talking and gathering together . . . . 2/11/2014 16:49
@JeffreyKeefer @fabianbanga @LitProfSuz @rcbatp @IshaiBarnoy This is something I hope to have as a focus in some future #AdjunctChat sessions 2/11/2014 16:49

@JeffreyKeefer I just noticed that some of @rcbatp’s replies did not include the #AdjunctChat so we missed some of them 😦 2/11/2014 16:52

@rcbatp @LitProfSuz #adjunctchat — We’re not programmed 2 live in contingency, especially teachers * the system is deadly and increases suffering 2/11/2014 16:53
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @rcbatp Yes, and the way HE is set up, #adjuncts rarely interact or even know of one another #AdjunctChat 2/11/2014 16:53
@rcbatp @JeffreyKeefer #adjunctchat — for any missed messages I’ll collect in my own Spotify under RCBATP . . . 2/11/2014 16:54
@JeffreyKeefer @Comprof1 @rcbatp Seems #adjuncts who do not attend meetings and only teach are better controlled than those who are involved #AdjunctChat 2/11/2014 16:54
@JeffreyKeefer @rcbatp Then please share them back here with the #AdjunctChat tag, too! 2/11/2014 16:54
