Mentoring is an activity and ethos fundamental to the CWSHRC, and this year Coalition members have a unique opportunity to mentor scholars who are knee-deep in important new work. Read on for details, including the 9/21 deadline for volunteering.
As you may recall, our Wednesday night session at the CCCC in Tampa will begin with an hour-long New Work Showcase featuring 12 scholars’ simultaneous, showcase-style presentations of new work. This group will also remediate their presentations for inclusion in the Spring 2015 issue of Peitho.
To prepare, we are matching each scholar with a mentor. Specifically, are pairing presenters with Coalition members
- whose scholarly interests and expertise overlap,
- who can offer suggestions and feedback on presenters’ mediation plans for the conference;
- who can also offer suggestions and feedback on presenters’ remediation plans for Peitho.
Nota bene: Conference presentations include posters, audio-visual laptop displays, brief activities, and so on. Peitho remediations will translate face-to-face presentations into formats that will be meaningful and accessible to online journal readers. The latter are *not* meant to extend conference presentations into full-length articles.
To become a mentor, review the list of Showcase presentations below and email me your request no later than Sunday, September 21st.
Best and looking forward!
Jenn, CWSHRC President (2014-2016)
