At this year’s ASA Annual Meeting, the Comparative Historical and Global & Transnational sections are teaming up once again to coordinate a Graduate Student and Postdoc Mentoring Event. We warmly invite all faculty, postdocs, and graduate students to participate. This event serves as an opportunity to strengthen the sections’ intellectual networks and further students’ professional development. Students and postdocs are paired with a faculty mentor who shares their research interests. Mentors and mentees then gather in small groups for informal conversation. Mentees may ask questions related to topics such as the job market, dissertation writing, work-life balance, or others of interest to them. The event will feature beverages and lite bites.
The event takes place on Sunday, August 12th, 4:30-6:30 PM and will be held at Aqimero in the lobby of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, located in Philadelphia’s historic Girard Trust Co. Building (10 Avenue of the Arts).
We are looking to recruit student and postdoc participants and faculty mentors. If you would like to participate, please register at the event website so that we can begin partnering students and faculty who share similar interests. Please note we are asking participants to contribute a small registration fee to offset food and beverage costs ($10 for students and $25 for faculty).
