For the Good or the “Guild”: An Open Letter to the American Academy of Religion

Kate Daley-Bailey
Issued Date: 15 Jan 2016

Abstract


This letter/essay addresses some of the critiques and recommendations I have for the American Academic of Religion regarding its treatment of adjunct concerns.I recommend the American Academy of Religion reassess its values and prioritizes and ask that the organization decide if it is a nonprofit organization or a guild. Subsequently, I recommend the American Academy of Religion discontinue its obfuscation of data on adjunct existence in the field, readjust its membership dues and conferences fees with the monetary plight of its underemployed or unemployed members in mind, and avoid marginalizing or patronizing those members who find themselves within the cycle of contingent employment.
