The Society for the Anthropology of Work will host a workshop during the AAAs for contingent faculty to learn about their rights.

Jonathan Karpf, who has been a Lecturer in Anthropology at San José State University for 30 years, and is the AVP for Lecturers in the California Faculty Association, will be leading a discussion on salary, health benefits, unemployment benefits between terms, pensions, and garnering respect and collegial behavior from your tenure-line colleagues.

The workshop will be held on Saturday, November 17th, 9:00 – 11:00 am at the Hammer Café in the Hammer Theater in San Jose, California.
