The heart of the Institute is a process of mentoring work-in-progress by providing feedback and support in small groups of scholars. In order to foster an active culture of exchange, mentoring cohorts are limited to no more than 28 scholars. Upon the acceptance of a project, each scholar is assigned a mentor who will be in touch with them ahead of the Institute to assist them in planning their presentations. Mentors are assigned a group of four scholars with whom they are responsible for four sessions during the Institute. Scholars present their projects during these sessions and receive feedback and suggestions from their mentor, each other, and participants. Mentors are also available for "their" scholar for individual consultations and conversations.

For more details see the Call for Projects, Scholar Submissions for a submission form, and Abstracts as they become available.
