The Graduate Student Committee of the Medieval Academy of America invites those attending the International Medieval Congress at Leeds (7-10 July 2014, University of Leeds, England) to participate in the MAA Graduate Student Mentorship Program. The program facilitates networking between graduate students and established scholars by pairing a student and scholar according to discipline. One need not be a member of the Medieval Academy to participate.
The mentorship exchanges are meant to help students establish professional contacts with scholars who can offer them career advice. The primary objective of this mentoring exchange is that the relationship be active during the conference, although mentors and mentees sometimes decide to continue communication after a conference has ended.
To volunteer as a mentor (faculty and independent scholars only) or to sign up as a mentee, please submit the online form, linked to this email, by Monday, 17 June. Find the online form here: GSC Mentoring Form. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to e-mail me.
