oh noes not more #COCAL_Updates, #archives & #adjunct ppl who just don't get it

Time to move on. That's why I did (please read my December 2013 statement). The collected Precarious Faculty pages, blogs, collections (manually curated, aggregated by algorithm or a combination thereof), and social media streams/platforms — not just this blog — are an independent information network. Obviously, that mean unaffiliated with any organization or group and working independently. Nor are areas of interest narrowly limited to adjunct advocacy. The "information" part comes from a firm conviction that being well informed -- and informing well -- are the best defenses in our mental arsenal.

But first, as I promised Joe, I'm working on the archives. It's still a work in progress, but here's where I am so far:
  • The separate Precarity Dispatches Tumblr page lists all the links to public locations. There still is no Tumblr tag feed for Updates as the tag is still giving me fits. 
  • The next link, the complete InoReader clip, displays all Updates with feeds from all public locations, with them most recent displaying at the top and updating automatically. Searching older posts is less convenient. 
  • The rest of the links in the first section go directly to Updates collections at individual locations
  • Following the comprehensive list of public archive links, the next group of links are to posts about Updates and archiving them.


…with apologies to readers as tired of this subject as I am

Now go over to Majority Rule: show your appreciation by commenting and thanking them for featuring Updates. Let me get back to informing. Well informed adjuncts and contingent faculty need to know about more than just the "movement." Our precarity is just one part of much larger and, yes, even more serious problems. 


  1. Amen!

    I hope I don't have to keep on saying ahem to others...

    Thank you, Vanessa!

    1. Don't bet on it. On the other hand, just sending / sharing this link should a reply. Maybe the subject should have started with "ahem" ;D


pull up a soapbox and share your 2¢
