Call for Applicants: NVSA Diversity Mentorship Program 2022 (Deadline: 10/1/22)

NVSA Diversity Mentorship Program

The Northeast Victorian Studies Association

Conference held in Baltimore, Maryland, USA (April 8-10, 2022)

Deadline to apply: October 1, 2022

The NVSA Diversity Mentorship Program seeks to enrich the field of Victorian studies by paving the way for a more inclusive professoriate that is representative of the populations we teach and serve. The program is especially geared towards graduate students of color; first-generation college students; students with disabilities; and queer, trans, and non-binary scholars. NVSA is especially interested in applications from those whose scholarship engages with critical race theory, postcolonial and transatlantic studies, disability studies, queer and trans studies, or related topics. Each cohort of mentors and mentees will provide a mutual support network while offering a platform to discuss professionalization issues and working towards equality in the field.

The program pairs graduate students with faculty mentors. Students will receive feedback on a piece of scholarship (a conference paper or article draft) and attend the annual NVSA conference in April with registration, travel, and lodging expenses defrayed. Applications are due October 1, 2022.

Applicants must be currently enrolled in an M.A. or Ph.D. program, and the work submitted must be in the field of long nineteenth-century studies. Please note that an application to the Mentorship Program is wholly separate from a submission to present a paper at the NVSA conference itself. Graduate students are most welcome to apply to both, and their applications will be considered independently. For more information and application instructions see https://nvsa.org/mentorship/ or email Mary Mullen at mary.l.mullen@villanova.edu.
