Daniel Markowicz

Call for Participants: Organizing in the Neoliberal University

The casualization of labor in the neoliberal university has caused much anxiety concerning the
current conditions in the academic workplace and future of our profession. In response, different
constituencies, including adjunct faculty and graduate students, have made attempts to seek job
protection through unionization, with varying degrees of success. This roundtable seeks to
address the practical problems involved in such organizing efforts.

This roundtable will consist of six to seven participants. Each participant will be asked to give a
brief, five minute presentation.

Topics may include, but not limited to:

CFP: Proposed Panel on Graduate Student Labor
        for Class Matters: The 2009 Working Class Studies Association Conference
        University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA
        June 3-6, 2009

The graduate student union movement of recent decades has taught much of academe what it
should have already knownâ€"that graduate students are workers in the university. This proposed
panel hopes to begin from this premise to analyze graduate students’ labor conditions, the
visceral and psychological experience of work and life under those conditions, and how they
impact graduate students’ work (research, teaching, service, etc.). Proposals are welcome for
papers on any aspect of this topic.
