Past Chair Carolina Bank Muñoz initiated a program of mentoring meetings for grad student members at the ASA meetings, and we judged it a success, so we’ll be doing it again this year. It’s pretty informal: we put you in touch with someone more senior scholar who seems like a helpful connection, and then the two of you arrange to meet for coffee or lunch at the meetings.
Just let me know by return email the following things:
1) Name and email
2) Research topic or area of interest
3) Methodology(ies) in which you are most interested
4) Any specific ideas for scholars you might like to meet (we will only put you in touch with one, but feel free to suggest more than one)
I’m traveling, so you will get my autoreply, but my committee and I will do our best to get you matched up.
