Thanks for this clear-eyed view of “sacrifice” and for amplifying Tressie McMillan Cottom’s tweets! Your comments about documents remind me of Sara Ahmed’s cautionary analysis about race equality documents becoming substitutes for action. (On Being Included, 100-105; 114-21) I think changing bylaws can be stepping stones toward action, and necessary steps. Somehow we must embody those inclusive practices and recalibrate our practices with guidance from and in response to other participants (“all appointment types”). If teaching assistants and adjuncts were truly at the table for those revisions, many structures would be upended. Further, as la paperson argues in A Third University is Possible, these individuals are not discrete; they/we extend beyond ourselves “into the system’s capacity.” That systemic agency is very exciting because it may help create new possibilities that are far more fecund.
