Out d’Coup Xtra | Interview with Dr. Amy Lynch-Biniek on Campus Equity Week, Adjunct Labor, and Solidarity

Campus Equity Week is the occasion for this Out d’Coup Xtra. Today Kevin Mahoney is talking with Dr. Amy Lynch-Biniek, the State Chair of APSCUF’s Adjunct Faculty Committee. Lynch-Biniek’s forthcoming book, Contingency, Exploitation, and Solidarity: Labor & Action in English Composition is a co-edited anthology with Seth Kahn & Bill Lalicker that explores the ways and means of labor reform on college campuses. She has also recently published “The Ethos of Writing Program Administration” with Anne Shivers McNair in Forum: Issues about Part-Time & Contingent Faculty. She is the current editor of the aforementioned Forum, a peer-edited journal from the National Council of Teachers of English.

Lynch-Biniek’s, “Campus Equity Week: We Can Do Better,” was the featured post on APSCUF’s statewide blog this week, urging tenure-line faculty to deepen solidarity with adjunct faculty not only during contract negotiations, but in the “small challenges we choose to face everyday.” Mahoney spoke with Lynch-Biniek at a Campus Equity Week event at Kutztown University as part of statewide events supported by the faculty union, APSCUF.
