The Graduate School Press of Syracuse University invites submissions for a contributed volume tentatively titled The Mentoring Continuum: From Graduate School Through Tenure, to be published by the Graduate School Press and distributed by Syracuse University Press. The editors welcome contributions from current graduate students as well as faculty and administrators.

While mentoring is often imagined as a phenomenon contained within dyadic relationships, where it is given by one person and received by another, this volume seeks to direct attention to the processual and interrelational aspects of mentoring. The editors encourage submissions that illustrate how early-career academics are simultaneously implicated in multiple mentor and protégé roles, and how the evolving nature of these roles refines and defines each participant’s professional identity. Submissions should fit within one of the following categories:

  • Reflections from senior scholars on their early mentoring experiences, the development of their mentoring skills, and the impact of mentoring relationships on the course of an academic career
  • Approaches to mentoring that represent current thinking or new directions in academic professionalization and faculty development
  • Applications of good mentoring practice in specific contexts, e.g., mentoring for degree completion, for the job search, for the teaching role, for publication, for tenure, etc.
  • Lineages: perspectives of two, three, or more scholars constituting a multi-generational mentoring “thread” (these may take the form of co-authored essays, dialogues, or interviews)

Abstracts of proposed contributions (500 words or less) should be submitted by August 1, 2013. Finished papers (4,000–7,000 words, Chicago style) will be due October 15, 2013.

Correspondence regarding the suitability of proposed contributions is welcome. Please direct submissions and inquiries to Glenn Wright, Director, The Graduate School Press, 220 Bowne Hall, Syracuse University, Syracuse, NY 13244; 315-443-3458; glwright@syr.edu
