Connect & Collaborate
Abstract: This year, IACM will host a new pre-conference consortium for PhD students and junior faculty to connect with each other and with mid-career and senior scholars. During this three-hour consortium, we will have two roundtable sessions. One will connect people with similar research interests to discuss burning research questions in those areas. Another will focus on questions about navigating careers (how to write a dissertation, get a job, manage the R&R process, develop mentor relationships). We will conclude with a panel of senior scholars who will answer any questions about both research AND career strategies. We look forward to a wonderful day of connecting, collaborating, and helping to develop relationships that will form the backbone of IACM going forward. Following the workshop, we will have an informal happy hour reception for participants and speakers.
