NACBS Mentoring Program

PCCBS encourages members to participate in NACBS’s new mentoring program that pairs advanced graduate students and early-career scholars with established scholars.

Mentorship may take a range of forms, but it is primarily intended as a means to offer concrete advice regarding the academic and professional job markets, developing and sustaining research agendas, publication strategies, finding and sustaining networks of support, juggling professional commitments, and other career-related issues.

This program is open to all scholars of British Studies wherever they may reside. Mentors should retain active membership status within NACBS throughout their participation in the program; however, mentees are encouraged but not required to join the NACBS.

For more information, and to apply, please see: http://nacbs.org/blog/announcement-of-nacbs-mentoring-program/
