"In Hidden Academics, Indhu Rajagopal examines the multiple ways in which contract faculty have emerged as an underclass in academia. She explores the identity of the part-time faculty, the nature of their work, and their feelings about their status within the university. Central to these discussions is an analysis of occupational segregation and the feminization of the part-time workforce. In the course of the study, Rajagopal also looks at full-time faculty and their perceptions of part-timers, academic administrators' reasons for hiring part-timers, and the future of the university in this context."--Jacket.
