REMINDER: DEADLINE TO REGISTER AS A MENTOR OR MENTEE:
Wednesday, February 18th
*Please note that since the 97th Annual Meeting of the Medieval Academy of America will be conducted in a hybrid format due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be running the mentorship program virtually. Because of this, anybody can participate, regardless of their MAA Annual Meeting attendance plans*
The Graduate Student Committee (GSC) of the Medieval Academy of America invites both those attending the 97th Annual Meeting of the Medieval Academy of America, hosted by the University of Virginia (March 10- 13), as well as any other interested medievalists to participate in the GSC Mentoring Program.
The GSC Mentoring Program facilitates networking between graduate students or early career scholars and more established scholars by pairing students and scholars according to common interest or academic 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 for the relationship to be active during the conference, though mentors and mentees are encouraged 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 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 Wednesday, February 18th.
On behalf of the committee, thank you and our best,
Mary M. Alcaro& Lauren Van Nest
