Description

Winner of the 2003 CCCC Outstanding Book Award

How can the academy improve the working conditions of those who teach most of the core curriculum in higher education today: part-time and non-tenure-track faculty? In Moving a Mountain, policymakers, academic administrators, and tenure-stream and contingent faculty focus on the field of composition as they address this question in case studies, local narratives, and analyses of models for ethical employment practices. Despite their different political stances, institutional settings, and reform agenda, contributors argue persuasively why it is in the academy’s best interest to reconsider the roles and rewards it has offered contingent faculty.
