Seth Kahn, from the Labor Caucus of CCCC, has shared this important update on a Contingent Faculty Travel Fund. The details follow below:
The Labor Caucus, in conjunction with the Committee on Part-Time, Adjunct, or Contingent Labor, has put forward a resolution to be taken up as New Business at the Sat morning Business Meeting. In short, the resolution calls on CCCC to administer a Contingent Faculty Travel Fund, which would be supported by voluntary contributions from CCCC members (we’re asking CCCC simply to add a line to the membership form and conference registration form on which people can add extra $ that goes to the fund). I’m pasting in the link to the Google Doc that has the current text of the resolution; the language might undergo minor changes after I meet with the CCCC Resolutions Committee on Thursday afternoon, but this is the guts of it.
I’m expecting some resistance to this resolution. I’m asking for CBW’s support because BW faculty stand to benefit significantly from it.
Feel free to send/ask questions if you have them; I’ll be checking my mail at least semi-regularly Tues/Wed/Thurs of this week. Probably easiest to get me .
