Novelist, then teacher union activist, then labor educator writing about learning in the workplace (political learning, not "skills") With NWU member Joe Berry just published Power Despite Precarity: Strategies for the Contingent Faculty Movement in Higher Education, with Pluto Books UK. Very involved with the new higher ed labor coalition, HELU, and trying to keep up with the crisis in US higher ed generally. I am currently the NWU delegate to HELU -- I'd appreciate being contacted by other NWU members who want to get involved.
