ASEH mentoring program

Call for Participation

Next year ASEH will expand our program, which in the past focused on the annual conference, to include the entire year of 2018. The objective is to assist students and early-career scholars in environmental history with professional development and engagement. See below if you are interested in participating as a mentor or mentee.


Mid-career or senior scholars, as well as professionals from outside the academy.


Graduate students at any stage of their careers or post-graduates within five years of receipt of their terminal graduate degree (including PhD, MA, and JD). Mentees must be members of ASEH.

How it Works

  • Mentors and mentees are matched by ASEH’s executive director.
  • This one-year mentoring relationship is intended for January through December 2018 and will include the annual conference in March, if both mentor and mentee attend this meeting.
  • Participants are encouraged, but not required, to meet once in person at the annual ASEH conference.
  • Communications may take place as often as once a month, either electronically or in-person. At a minimum communications will include 3-4 conversations over the course of a year and will include an exchange of experiences and career advice.
  • While reading of dissertation chapters or grant proposals is helpful to every junior scholar, this program defers that labor to the mentee’s local networks. No commitment to reading is required of the mentor in ASEH’s mentoring program.
  • Instead, mentoring conversations will focus on career advice, professional advancement, and facilitating contacts.

How to Sign Up

If you are interested in serving as a mentor or in being a mentee, please contact by March 1, 2018.

Indicate your preference (mentor or mentee) and we will match people before the conference and send them one another's contact info.

If you are a non-academic mentor willing to talk about your work and if you are a student or new professional who would prefer to talk with a non-academic mentor, please indicate that preference as well.

nullThere will be a special meeting of mentors/mentees at the Women's Environmental History Network's reception at our conference in Riverside. Details will be provided as the date gets closer.
