The Graduate Student Committee of the Medieval Academy of America invites those attending the Kalamazoo ICMS or Leeds IMC to participate in the Medieval Academy’s 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 (graduate students) please submit this online form.
At this year’s Kalamazoo ICMS, an Undergraduate Mentorship Program is also being piloted. This program will connect graduate students with undergraduates considering further study. To sign up for this pilot program as a mentor (graduate students) or as a mentee (undergraduate students), please submit this online form.
For the 2016 Kalamazoo ICMS, the deadline to sign up is Friday, April 29.
Please contact the Mentorship Program co-ordinators, Justin Barker and Timothy Nelson, for additional information.
