About Thomas Discenna

My primary research explores different aspects of academic labor including graduate unionization efforts, contingency, undergraduate labor in the form of unpaid internships as well as the labor of the professoriate. I was President of one of the oldest collective bargaining chapters of the AAUP. In addition, I maintain an active line of research in rhetorical theory and the study of the early twentieth century German philosopher Ernst Cassirer.
Tom Discenna is Professor of Communication at Oakland University whose work examines issues of academic labor and communicative labor more broadly.
