Inclusive fees campaign

The inclusive fees campaign now has a site where you can pledge your support.

Join this campaign and pledge to do one or more of the following:
1. pledge to provide a reduced or waived fees category for contingent faculty and other underemployed academics in any conference you organize
2. lobby the academic organizations you are a member of to provide such reduced fees
3. if you are in a privileged position within academia, you can also follow one or more of these practices:
a.if you are asked to be a reviewer at a conference, ask organizers if they are considering a special registration category for non-TT scholars
b.pay your accommodation and/or travel expenses, asking organizers to put the money toward help for those less able to afford the conference
c.when giving a department seminar, suggest an inexpensive restaurant so that those with less money can come
d.if you are invited to give a talk, depending on your economic situation you can refuse an honorarium, asking organizers to use the money to help those less able to afford the conference

  1. How great! Thank you for providing the pledge page! I’d note that non-Ph.D. researchers also inhabit the population of contingent researchers and faculty. I am an adjunct in the sphere of law and legal studies; my writing addresses such topics as personhood, migration, rights theory and environmental ethics. Legal writing, research and teaching comprises a field in which profs typically hold a J.D. (some of us also hold an LL.M.).Everything in your proposal applies to legal theory and law conferences; and I’m sure I’m not the only legal researcher who has also presented work at conferences.for philosophy, bioethics, gender studies, etc.
