With contingent faculty now making up almost three-quarters of higher education’s academic workforce, the teacher/scholar model has broken down. Most contingent historians engage actively as scholars, but they do so with little support from scholarly institutions. This session examines the impact of the academic workforce’s transformation on historical scholarship. How does contingency shape historians’ research and scholarship? What consequences does this have for the substance and format of historical scholarship in the 21st century? What changes does this transformation demand of colleges and universities, funders, editors, archives, faculty unions, and professional associations to support contingent historians’ excellence in scholarship?

The CCWH Prelinger Award is a scholarship of $20,000 awarded to a scholar of excellence. This award, named for Catherine Prelinger, a former CCWH president and nontraditional scholar, is intended to enhance the work of a contemporary scholar whose academic path has not followed the traditional path of uninterrupted study, moving from completed secondary, to undergraduate, then graduate degrees, followed by a tenure-track faculty position. These funds were originally granted to CCWH by an anonymous donor in honor of the work this organization has devoted to exploring women’s history, encouraging opportunities for women in the profession, and in educating young women to pursue careers in history. It’s intended to enhance the ability of the recipient to carry on these traditions through contributions to women in history.
