Roundtable at NeMLA 2023, May 23-26 in Niagra Falls, NY

This roundtable seeks participants outside of tenure & tenure-track university positions, for a frank discussion about managing research and writing lives when research and writing is not strictly considered part of the job. Contingent and adjunct faculty, those whose roles are solely defined as “teaching,” and independent scholars with alt-ac day jobs all have particular constraints to their research time and access. This roundtable will explore diverse approaches to these questions: How do you juggle your commitments, find support and funding, get access to library collections, etc. in less-than-perfect situations?

This session is sponsored by the CAITY Caucus.
