Adjunct?
Contingent?
Part-Time?
Contract?
Lecturer?
Visiting?
What terms do you hear or
use for those who teach in
higher education on a per-
course or non-permanent
basis?
Adjunct, part-time, contingent, temporary,
casual, visiting, or non-permanent
instructors across higher education
in the U.S. account for
76% of all university teaching
(American Association of University Professors, n.d.).

Contract Examples
The Good
(real example)
• $6000+ for 13-week
course
• Instructor autonomy
• 48/hr response (business
days only)
The Bad
(real example)
• $98/student no minimum,
8-week course
• 24/hr student response
(7-days/week)
• Min two sync sessions
• Mark all assignments with
5 business days
Rebecca J. Hogue @rjhogue | Jeffrey M. Keefer @JeffreyKeefer
Questionable practices
• No advanced warning – contracts are
issued less than a week before classes
begin
• Classes/contracts are cancelled without
warning
• Education doctorates that require unpaid
(or worse where the student pays) to be
a TA or instructor for a course
Rebecca J. Hogue @rjhogue | Jeffrey M. Keefer @JeffreyKeefer
Narratives Considerations
• Is adjuncting a career, a path, or
something else?
• Is flexible academic work exploitive or
empowering?
• What effect does adjuncting have on
disciplines, theory, practice, and
research?
• How does organized labor / unions
manage knowledge workers?
• How do contracts, appointments,
advancement, access, and equity work
for part-time instructors?
Rebecca J. Hogue @rjhogue | Jeffrey M. Keefer @JeffreyKeefer
Narratives Considerations
• What does power and privilege mean
when considering contract academics?
• Is adjunct online teaching freeing,
exploitive, or something else?
• Who really cares about research if tenure
is not a possibility?
• Is there a narrative at all or are the
voices too diverse?
What other questions need to be asked?
