Abstract

What is the role of adjunct teaching in the digital humanities? Could digital humanities become a hiring expectation, particularly among less-funded institutions, before digital pedagogy experts provide guidelines or best practices articulated specifically for adjunct working conditions? This essay examines the “adjunctification” of the humanities professoriate with a specific focus on the perception of digital humanities as immune from the hiring reductions endemic to the non-DH humanities. It discloses particular working conditions of adjunct instructors using DH methods in the classroom with little-to-no instructional support. It proposes an ethic of care that could be implemented to protect adjunct digital humanities faculty.
