Mentoring Discussion Series, Question 1:
What do you wish you'd known when you were just starting out in the field?
We really hope that a wide variety of scholars will join in this discussion thread and lend advice to their more junior counterparts. H-SAWH is designed to help female and gender historians connect with and support one another, and we hope that this discussion series will further these goals.
A new discussion question will be posted every other week. You can suggest a discussion topic or question here. There are also excellent essays on a wide variety of mentoring-related topics available in H-SAWH's mentoring toolkit.
