Welcome to the SMT Committee on Diversity’s new mentoring and networking initiative!
This program aims to nurture the work and careers of students and junior scholars who identify as under-represented racial or ethnic minorities in music theory, by providing them with support in a variety of areas, such as:
- Mentoring and guidance on career-related personal and professional matters.
- Assistance with preparing submissions for conferences and journals.
- Networking to help develop research projects, and other collaborative ventures.
If you are a student or junior scholar who would like to take advantage of this new initiative, please see this page for mentees, and we will be happy to match you up with a senior colleague who could be of assistance to you. If you are interested in networking with a larger group of scholars, rather than being matched up with an individual mentor, please feel free to post to the discussion forum, and we will work with you to get a number of colleagues involved with your project.
We are also looking for senior music theorists who would like to help further the cause of this new initiative by volunteering as mentors to our junior colleagues. If you would like to be a mentor, we would be very grateful for your help indeed! In which case, please see this page for mentors, so we can match you with an appropriate mentee. (All the information provided via this questionnaire will be accessible only to members of the Committee on Diversity, who will use it for no other purpose than to match mentors with mentees.)
