In defense of composition's contingent faculty, adjuncts, and graduate students Tenured Bosses and Disposable Teachers: Writing Instruction in the Managed University exposes the poor working conditions of contingent composition faculty and explores practical alternatives to the unfair labor practices that are all too common on campuses today. Editors Marc Bousquet, Tony Scott, and Leo Parascondola provide a perceptive and engaging examination of the nature, extent, and economics of the managed labor problem in composition instruction--a field in which as much as ninety-three percent of all classes are taught by graduate students, adjuncts, and other "disposable" teachers. Twenty-six contributors explore a range of real-world solutions to managerial domination of the composition workplace, from traditional academic unionism to ensemble movement activism and the pragmatic rhetoric, accommodations, and resistances practiced by teachers in their daily lives.

Tony Scott is an assistant professor at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and a member of the CCCC Committee on Contingent, Adjunct, and Part-Time Faculty.
