Networking and Mentoring: Perspectives from Anthropological Sciences

Friday, March 22
8:00-10:50 am    

CHRISOMALIS, Stephen (Wayne State U) Networking and Mentoring: Perspectives from Anthropological Sciences. This three-hour workshop helps students (undergraduate and graduate) and early-career scholars (postdocs, non-tenure-stream, practicing/professional) build skills to help expand their intellectual networks and find mentorship beyond that provided by their degree program – to make sense out of a sometimes-daunting disciplinary and professional environment. Recognizing that scientifically-oriented anthropologists can be poorly understood, the workshop helps participants talk to all anthropologists about their work. We will develop practical, actionable strategies for finding like-minded scholars and practitioners within participants’ topics of study, cultivate 'network thinking' aimed at academic, non-academic, or hybrid careers, and generate short-form professional narratives for various professional goals.
