MAA News – MAA Graduate Student Committee Mentoring Program

The Graduate Student Committee of the Medieval Academy of America invites those attending the Medieval Academy Annual Meeting, 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, please submit this online form: GSC Mentoring Form

For the 2016 Annual Meeting of the Medieval Academy of America (February 25-27 in Boston), the deadline to sign up is Friday, January 22.

Please contact the Mentorship Program co-ordinators,  Justin Barker and Timothy Nelson, for additional information.
