Resources for Contingent Faculty
Over the past few years the Association has grown increasingly concerned that a growing number of historians are being forced into part-time, adjunct, and temporary capacities at colleges and universities, living on small wages and even fewer benefits. This page provides recent data on the use of faculty in these capacities, and additional resources to assist historians seeking employment in the academy.
In January 2000, the Association established a special committee to review the proliferation of part-time and adjunct employment and review their working conditions. In 2014, the Committee on Contingent Faculty was formed to look into the issue once again.
