Support Adjuncts of the AAR and SBL

Contingent faculty within Religious Studies and Theology desperately need the moral and financial support of their leading organizations and members of said organizations. According to the American Association of University Professors' latest report, within the last forty years "the proportion of the
academic labor force holding full-time tenured positions has
declined by 26 percent and the share holding full-time tenuretrack
positions has declined by an astonishing 50 percent.
Conversely, there has been a 62 percent increase in full-time
non-tenure-track faculty appointments and a 70 percent
increase in part-time instructional faculty appointments." Adjunct and contingent faculty need their professional organizations to lower conference and membership rates for those in this precarious plight, they need help networking from established members of their field, and they need tenured professors to fight for them.
