Precarious Historians, Trade Unions & the Neo-Liberal University: Webinar

Scroll this

The Precarious Historical Instructors’ Manifesto, published a year ago on Active History, has shocked many in the profession into re-thinking our relationships with our precariously employed colleagues and the nature of their experiences as researchers and instructors. In response, the Canadian Historical Association has organized a series of webinars to discuss related issues. The second of these webinars, on Precarious Historians, Trade Unions & the Neo-Liberal University, will be held tomorrow, Friday, January 22 at 1 pm ET (eastern time).

Chair:  Nancy Janovicek 

Participants:  Godefroy Desrosiers-Lauzon; Peter McInnis; Christine Gauthier; Jeremy Milloy; Catherine Larochelle; Janis Thiessen.
