This panel will explore the following questions. All takes on these questions and related issues of academic/university labor are welcome: What is professionalism today, and how might we approach the study of professions from today’s emerging abolitionist and decolonial perspectives?  What does it mean to talk about the academic profession and academic freedom in our present moment, and how do our ways of talking about our work reflect different relationships to professionalism?
