M(e[a]t) a Professor: IRSCL Mentorship Lunch Program
Date and Time: 30th July 12:15-13:15
Location: Winters Dining Room and Founders Dining Room
During the lunch break on July 30th, we will be running the “M(e[a]t) a Professor Mentorship” event to match graduate students and junior scholars with established scholars to build networking relationships. We are encouraging mentors and those seeking mentors to bring questions and advice to share over lunch: we envision the meetings will be a wonderful opportunity to network for both up-and-coming and established scholars in the fields of children’s and young adult literature and childhood studies
If you are interested in joining, e-mail Anah-Jayne Markland (firstname.lastname@example.org) expressing your interest.
