REMINDER: DEADLINE TO REGISTER AS A MENTOR OR MENTEE:
June 8, 2020
*Please note that since IMC Leeds has been cancelled due the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be running the mentorship program digitally. Because of this, anybody can participate, regardless of their Leeds 2020 attendance plans*
The Graduate Student Committee (GSC) of the Medieval Academy of America invites both those who would have attended the 2020 International Medieval Congress, hosted by the University of Leeds (6-9 July 2020), and any other interested medievalists to participate in the GSC Virtual 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 8 June 2020.
On behalf of the committee, thank you and our best,
Julia King & Lauren Van Nest
2020-2021 Mentoring Program Coordinators
