Welcome to WIEL/IELO's 'Notices and Events' page. This page is not a replacement for the News or Events pages on the main SIEL Website. Rather, it is a forum where we will post the notes from WIEL/IELO meetings, notices of informal gatherings at upcoming conferences, and the like.
If you have a notice that you would like to post, please email either Tracey Epps (firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com) or Freya Baetens (firstname.lastname@example.org).

Mentoring (Posted on: 27 October 1020, by Tracey Epps)
We are looking for people who would like to take part in our informal mentoring programme. Rather than trying to do anything too ambitious, we would simply like at this stage to get people connected. To this end, we would like to hear from people who are willing to be mentors - this would not involve too much of your time, we envisage that it would involve emailing with your mentee, and maybe meeting up in person if you are in the same city or going to be at the same conference. To be a mentor, you should have at least 7 years of experience in the IEL field (whether in practice or academia, or both).
We would also like to hear from anyone who would like to be a mentee. You might be a student (undergraduate or postgraduate), or a new'ish academic or practitioner. Just email Tracey or Freya and let us know what your areas of interest are and we will match you up with a mentor.
Once we have a few volunteers to act as mentors, we will think about how to advertise this more widely - so that we can reach out to students and new academics / practitioners who have not been involved in SIEL to date.
