DEADLINE TO REGISTER AS A MENTOR OR MENTEE:
*Please note that if Kalamazoo is cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be running the mentorship program digitally. Please visit
https://wmich.edu/medievalcongress for more information about the status of Kalamazoo 2020.
The Graduate Student Committee (GSC) of the Medieval Academy of America invites those attending the 55th International Congress on Medieval Studies, hosted by the Medieval Institute at Western Michigan University (7-10 May 2020) to participate in the GSC 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.
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 9 April 2020.
On behalf of the committee, thank you and our best,
Austin Powell & Julia King
2020 Mentoring Program Coordinators
