This week we touched on the adviser/advisee relationship between faculty and students in class, and by coincidence blogger k8andcat has posted a very insightful and useful post on this topic. If you are a student (grad or undergrad) or a potential mentor, please read it.

It is here.

    One of the folks in your Congo Memoirs has been an excellent mentor to me. I am just sorry I did not hear about the anthropology department sooner so that he could have had more power to help me!

    Laelaps: Are you talking about Big Red?

    Kate: May many many people read your post!

    I think so, though I’m not entirely up on the code names. It was the fellow from down under who had the paper in Science this week.

    Is that technically down under? Well, at least nearby down under.

    I’m glad he is helping you out.
