MENTORING EVENT: ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

ASA 2019 NEW YORK CITY CHS-GS MENTORING EVENT – DEADLINE 1 July 2019

At this year’s ASA meeting, the Comparative Historical and Global & Transnational sections are teaming up once again to host a Graduate Student and Postdoc Mentoring Event. The event will take place on Sunday, August 11th, 4:30-6:30 PM and will be held at Latitude Bar and Grill, which is located at 783 8th Avenue (between 47th and 48th).

This event aims to strengthen the sections’ intellectual networks and further students’ professional development by pairing volunteer faculty members with students and post-docs who share their research interests. Mentors and mentees then gather in small groups for informal conversation. Mentees may ask questions on topics like the job market, dissertation writing, work-life balance, and more. The event will feature beverages and light appetizers.

We are looking to recruit student participants and faculty mentors. If you would like to participate, please register at the event website so that we can begin partnering students and postdocs with 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/post-docs and $25 for faculty). We request that all registration be completed by July 1.

Those interested in more information are invited to contact Sara Tomczuk (saratomczuck@gmail.com).

Sincerely,

Mentorship Event Organizing Committee
