In the fall of 2015 Contract Faculty member Stephen Svenson and Regular Faculty member Garry Potter attended the Challenging Academic Precarity Symposium at Trent University in Peterborough where they filmed the proceedings and interviewed conference attendees.
Additional interviews were conducted with CF at Wilfrid Laurier University.
The result is a short documentary Contract Faculty: Injustice in the University. The film will be showing throughout southwestern Ontario in the coming months.
Synopsis: The film explores the situation of Canadian Contract Faculty and compares their situation to the even poorer conditions American Contract Faculty face. This highlights the need to more firmly address working conditions in Canada.
