Sociology of Development Section Mentoring Program!

Our section’s Graduate Student Representative, Karin Johnson (University of California Riverside), has volunteered to take the lead in pairing up graduate students and junior faculty with a scholar more advanced in their career. From July 3rd to 31st, we would like to solicit applications for mentors and mentees. Click here and fill out your information.

Pairs will be matched based on their desired areas of mentorship, dates attending the conference, then on substantive research interests. Mentorships groups will consist of at least one mentor and one or more mentees. Mentors and mentees should meet up informally during the ASA conference. You will be notified of your pairing by Monday, August 5th.

Questions? Email Karin Johnson at

This is a really great opportunity to further build our section’s wonderful community. Please seriously consider participating. And a sincere thanks to Karin for taking the lead on this!
