We are hosting a mentoring scheme for Bourdieu in Educational Research SIG Members who are starting out in academia and looking to contribute to sociology of education.The aim of this scheme is to promote dialogue around Bourdieusian issues with writing and publication.It would also create additional opportunities for collaboration and strengthen networks among researchers early in the careers.

This mentorship program is designed to help PhD students and early career researchers improve their writing skills and publication output through personalized mentorship. First, will be a 90-minute Writing Workshop (over Zoom) held in December which would be led by the SIG conveners and have tips in terms of academic writing, editing, journal recommendations.After the workshop, we would then provide one-to-one feedback on a draft of a journal article.
