About This Book
Untenured Faculty As Writing Program Administrators examines the politics of junior faculty appointments to positions as writing program administrators from historical, contextual, and personal perspectives. A central aim of this provocative book is to accept and reconcile the tension between the Council of Writing Program Administrators’ position statement and current institutional practices. Contributors include graduate students full of desire and ambition, untenured faculty who actively pursued administrative appointments (jWPAs) and now reflect on their decisions, and senior administrators whose experience authorizes their arguments for or against jWPA appointments. The collection brings theory to bear on the jWPA situation as the chapters move beyond victim narratives to examine these controversial issues head on.
