Applications for the GUHP Mentorship Program are due Friday, September 24
The Global Urban History Project (GUHP) invites applications from graduate students and early careers scholars in urban history to join one of four workshops it will run during the 2020-21 academic year as part of GUHP’s new Four Dream Conversations in Urban History.
Selected applicants will be paired with a senior scholar and GUHP member in their field and will participate in a series of events designed to facilitate intellectual engagement, offer feedback on research and writing, and promote peer and professional support. Workshop participants will be of course invited to all other public events in the four Dream Conversations series. The workshop will culminate in a spring symposium (date TBA). Exceptional papers may be recommended for publication in the Global Urban History Blog, journal special issues, or other venues.
Participants will be expected to present the results of their project during the spring symposium. The symposium will be open to the wider GUHP community via video conference.
Workshop themes, structure, moderators, and timeline are detailed below. All activities will be held online, through video conferences, though some hybrid events may be scheduled as part of the critical Conversations series. Mentors, who may be moderators or other senior GUHP members, will be assigned once applications are accepted.
Applicants must be advanced graduate students or have completed their graduate degree in the past five years and must register as members of GUHP to qualify for the mentorship workshop.
Applicants must be GUHP members. If you are not a GUHP member, please sign up prior to applying. No-cost options are available.
Successful applicants will receive an honorarium of $500.
