I’ve decided to migrate my blog, The Homeless Adjunct, from the www.junctrebellion.com site to a wordpress site, because it is much harder to get the blogs out into the wider world from an Apple website. So, I’ll begin blogging here starting now, and will invite you to visit my website for the archived blogs that I posted there in the past.
It feels important that the blog begin to develop a wider readership, especially now that the situation with adjunct faculty labor abuse has become more of a topic nationally. It is also important because beginning within the next few weeks, our documentary/book project will begin to pick up speed, and there will be a lot to share here.
We will be posting not only our own blogs, but also linking to other important conversations about adjunct faculty labor abuse, and the related issues. Building a broad base and a wide network is crucial to raising awareness and extending that awareness beyond the academic circles where too much of the conversation, so far, has taken place.
For those of you interested in the art of the site, I would like to tell you that the photograph in the background, of the ruined and upturned classroom is an open source photo called “Second Floor Classroom” By Rinabodina, from a series taken from the abandoned Bennett College. This can be found on Flickr. The header shot was another open source called “College Revisited” by Spark Fish, also on Flickr. I think that the images portray exactly the way I feel about what has happened to the university of America. It is in ruins.
