DEADLINE TO REGISTER AS A MENTOR OR MENTEE:
June 8, 2021
*Please note that since the Leeds International Medieval Congress 2021 will be conducted virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be running the mentorship program digitally. Because of this, anybody can participate, regardless of their 2021 IMC Leeds attendance plans*
The Graduate Student Committee (GSC) of the Medieval Academy of America invites those attending the Leeds International Medieval Congress 2021, hosted by the University of Leeds (5-9 July 2021), and any other interested medievalists to participate in the GSC Virtual Mentoring Program.
The GSC Mentoring Program facilitates networking between graduate students or early career scholars and established scholars by pairing student and scholar according to discipline.
Mentorship exchanges are intended to help students establish professional contacts with scholars who can offer them career advice. The primary objective of this exchange is that the relationship be active during the conference, although mentors and mentees sometimes decide to continue communication after a conference has ended.
We have recorded an increased interest in the GSC Mentorship Program since it has been held virtually due to COVID-19 restrictions. We will attempt to match all those who register as a mentee with mentors; however, if need be, preference will be granted to those in order of form submission.
To volunteer as a mentor (faculty, librarians, curators, independent scholars) or to sign up as a mentee, please submit the online form, linked here, by 8 June 2021.
On behalf of the committee, thank you and our best,
Mary M. Alcaro & Lauren Van Nest
2021-2022 Mentoring Program Coordinators
