Early Career Scholars Mentoring Program 2023

In conjunction with the upcoming Hume Conference, the Society will sponsor the 11th annual Mentoring Workshop for Early Career Scholars. Any early career scholar working in any area of Hume scholarship is eligible to submit an article length piece of written work (e.g., thesis chapter, conference submission, journal article, book chapter draft, etc.) and meet with an expert in their area. A modest stipend will be provided. 

The program will consist of both the one-on-one mentoring opportunity and a group workshop for all Early Career Scholars to attend (mentors need not attend). The workshop will be held on Tuesday, July 18, 1-3pm. It will involve a panel of experienced scholars speaking on early career issues and be an opportunity for Q&A. Mentees participating in the mentoring program this year will be expected to attend this workshop. Lunch will be provided.

Graduate students and early career scholars (pre-tenure) who are interested in participating can contact Jason Fisette at jfisette@unr.edu.

We are also looking for volunteers who will be in Provo to act as mentors for early career scholars. In this role you will be assigned a mentee and receive a sample of their written work in advance of the conference. Your commitment is to have a one-on-one mentoring meeting with the early career scholar. At some point during the conference, you and the mentee will arrange to have lunch together and discuss their work. The Hume Society will reimburse the lunch cost.
