Abstract

The following roundtable grew out of a set of presentations at the  Historians of the Twentieth-Century United States (HOTCUS) conference at University College Dublin. The session provided the opportunity for those with experience of precarious employment as teaching fellows in American studies at UK universities to reflect on that experience. In doing so, the contributors used a combination of autobiographical and scholarly reflection to discuss issues of precarity, discrimination, inequality, career devel- opment and workload that provide a range of vital insights into the experi- ences of those temporarily employed to teach American studies, a category that is growing in number. As part of JAS’s commitment to publishing discus- sions of both pedagogy and early-career professional development, we hope that readers at all career stages will find thought-provoking information and ideas in the reflections that follow.
