About 6 months ago Sarah Dyer suggested an e-reading group on a recently published paper – Peters K, Turner J, 2014, “Fixed-term and temporary: teaching fellows, tactics, and the negotiation of contingent labour in the UK higher education system” Environment and Planning A 46(10) 2317 – 2331 (http://www.envplan.com/abstract.cgi?id=a46294). The original post is at https://www.linkedin.com/grp/post/6509105-5943727838417948672. THE GEES is a closed group on LinkedIn, but if you would like to join, please just submit a join request.
Sarah, Helen Walkington, Stephanie Wyse and I met up on Skype to discuss our thoughts on the paper and wrote our discussion up as a Letter to the Editor for Environment and Planning A, which has now been published (http://www.envplan.com/abstract.cgi?id=a4704l)! (The preprint is available on my publications page if you can’t access EPA).
I really enjoyed the process and it didn’t take too much of our time. If there’s an article you think it would be interesting to discuss, post it up here and see who else is interested.
Thanks very much to Sarah for starting this off for us, and coordinated THE GEES group!
