This paper is based on a roundtable discussion held in September 2016 as part of the Pedagogical Inspiration Conference for teachers at the Faculties of Humanities and Theology at Lund University (LU). The roundtable was meant to focus specifically on the consequences of the lack of permanent teaching positions for the quality of the pedagogical work carried out at LU. However, as will be discussed below, the conversation during the roundtable session soon revealed the difficulties in discussing the pedagogical issues without also getting into related topics pertaining to the employment experience of participants as well as the work environment at LU more generally.
