Über diesen Titel:
The first three essays in the anthology serve as a general introduction to the causes and consequences of those second-class working conditions. David Ehrenfeld offers one of the best short overviews I've read on why an academic underclass was created and is growing in number. M. Elizabeth Wallace offers a detailed analysis of life in the underclass in Oregon public higher education, an essay followed by "Paper Graders," or life in the underclass at the University of Oregon, a typical tax-supported state higher education institution.
After the introduction, the anthology moves your attention to the voices of people who survive in the underclass day to day, term to term, semester to semester. These are the voices of poets and writers who know well the fear, anger, and absurdity of teaching "in a supposedly democratic community of scholars." They know the fear of ending up like Greer for speaking up about their working conditions. They know the anger of being used and abused and having no power to stop it. They know the absurdity of academic freedom in a system where they teach what they cannot honestly practice--open inquiry, critical thinking, and the free expression of that thinking.
