Joint Statement on Fixed-Term Contracts in German Academia

The German Association for the Study of British Cultures has signed the open letter “Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz abschaffen – Grundfinanzierung der Universitäten stärken.” The joint statement on the precarity of academic careers in Germany calls for an open discussion and reform of the German law on fixed-term contracts in academia, not only in the wake of the #IchBinHanna movement.
