Call for FORUM Manuscripts: Contingency and Online Education

Submission deadline: October 1, 2018
Note: submissions will not be returned.

The editor of FORUM: Issues about Part-Time and Contingent Faculty seeks articles exploring the relationships among contingent faculty, online education, and conventional face-to-face (f2f) programs.

Writers may approach the theme in a variety of ways, including but not limited to the following:

  • What are the trends, opportunities, and challenges of online composition teaching and online writing center work for contingent faculty?
  • How does the contingent teaching experience (pedagogically, professionally, personally) differ in f2f versus online environments?
  • Are there incentives or concessions for adjuncts moving from f2f to online classrooms?
  • How are course caps, curricular requirements, academic freedom, course loads, pay, and other concerns influencing the adjunct instructor experience in online teaching and tutoring environments?

Due to FORUM’s space limitations, essays should be between 1,500 and 2,500 words. While authors should reference current professional/scholarly discussions, extensive literature reviews are not required. Submissions will go through peer review. For further information please contact Amy Lynch-Biniek at

Submit your work electronically to Put the words “FORUM article” in your subject line. Submissions should include the following information:

  • your name
  • your title(s)
  • your institution(s)
