Academic Labor: Research and Artistry is a peer-reviewed open access academic journal launched in 2016 by the Center for the Study of Academic Labor (CSAL) at Colorado State University. The journal seeks to motivate ongoing research on matters relating to tenure and contingency in the academy. Along with our center and web site, we seek to become a research home for those undertaking scholarship in areas broadly defined as tenure studies and contingency studies. To meet this objective, we encourage a wide range of contributions, from the statistical to the historic/archival, from the theoretical to the applied, from the researched to the creative, and from empirical to essayist forms. Our editors and reviewers include social scientists, artists, and theorists specializing in labor issues.
