We invite proposals that address any aspect of the structure of academic labor or the experiences of contingent faculty, within the discipline of religious and theological studies or in the humanities/academy more broadly.

We are especially interested in papers that


(a) explore the various forms that contingent academic labor takes and the different experiences of economic precarity and institutional and/or guild status they entail; or


(b) name and confront (income, power, recognition, or other) barriers to solidarity between contingent and tenured/tenure-eligible faculty and/or between faculty and other higher ed laborers and explore possibilities of fomenting solidarity.
