2014-2015 Call for Participation

Our field boasts a wide range of area studies and disciplinary knowledge, but how one makes one’s way through dissertation rites, funding circles, postdocs, job markets, and non-academic career trajectories is often left as much to creative invention as it is to shared advice. Early-career scholars rightly lean on their advisors, their universities, and their peer networks with these issues, but the advantage of an association like ASEEES is that we can offer a good deal more.

In a pilot project, ASEEES is sponsoring a new network to match volunteer mentors and mentees who are interested in conversation on these and other topics over the course of a single academic year.


may come from mid-career or senior scholars, as well as professionals from outside the academy, to be matched with 


who are graduate students at any stage of their careers or post-graduates within five years of receipt of the Ph.D.
