Coalition of Contingent Academic Labor Conference

Dear Colleague,

Registration is now open for the eleventh conference of the Coalition of Contingent Academic Labor, in which the AAUP is a proud participant. COCAL was formed in 1996 to bring attention to issues facing contingent faculty. Its biannual conferences help faculty in contingent positions and their allies learn about the issues, network, organize for action, and create solidarity among faculty.

The theme of COCAL XI is “Shaping an Equitable & Democratic Future For Higher Education—The Way Forward.” Highlights of the schedule include an open plenary about the current state of contingency in the US, Canada, and Mexico; discussion groups on a variety of topics; and a talk about what contingent faculty can learn from contingent workers in other industries.

COCAL XI will be held from August 4 to 6 at the John Jay College of the City University of New York (524 West 59th St, New York City, New York 10019).
