I am a long-time member of H-Net and new H-Adjunct member. I am in the adjunct pool at a local private liberal arts college, a media teaching artist (as an independent contractor) in K-12 schools, and an independent scholar. I am also currently receiving medical disability, and I am looking for resources/community for contingent workers on disability.
In general, contingent work is not well understood or supported (as adjunct instructors already know), and I'm struggling to find information to navigate this confusing and doubly-precarious health and financial terrain. I'm actually grateful
