KSAA Mentoring Project

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

The Keats-Shelley Association of America announces the second year of its three-year Mentoring Project. This project is designed to aid younger members of the profession in the crucial early stages of their careers by increasing the exchange of scholarly expertise and practical professional information between junior and senior scholars. If a senior scholar (who has earned tenure) would like to be a mentor (for one protégé), he or she should notify the Mentoring Committee, outlining briefly for us his or her range of scholarly or professional areas of expertise (e.g., Charlotte Smith, grant writing). Junior scholars who have earned the Ph.D. but not yet received tenure can request a mentor by describing their own scholarly interests and professional concerns. All offers and requests should be submitted by April 2. The Mentoring Committee of the KSAA will match prospective mentors with prospective protégés in late April. Mentors and protégés commit to one year of conversation (vocal, written, and/or electronic).

A full description of the Project, prepared for its inaugural year, can be found on the Keats-Shelley Association Website:
