The QR SIG Mentoring Committee is again offering the opportunity for its members to receive one-to-one guidance from established qualitative scholars as well as emerging scholars. The “Office Hours” program invites prospective mentees to sign up and meet with a mentor at the AERA meeting, during which time they can ask the mentor's advice about issues of methodology, theory, and/or negotiating the academy as a qualitative and/or post qualitative researcher.
The scholars listed below volunteered to host Office Hours at this year's AERA. These scholars are looking forward to meeting with you for 20-30 minutes to discuss issues pertaining to qualitative research and the academy.

Anyone is welcome to sign up, but space is limited and assignments will be made in the order requests are received. If you are interested, please send an email to Amanda Armstrong at firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday 28 February 2018. Please indicate which scholar(s) you would most like to meet and if you have any specific topics you would like to discuss with them. If you are unfamiliar with a scholar on the list, we encourage you to take this opportunity to look up their names and get familiar with how they conceptualize and enact qualitative and/or post qualitative research.
Once the scholar's hours are full, we will send an email connecting you and the scholar so that you can determine a time to meet that works with your AERA schedules.
We hope you take advantage of this opportunity -- the scholars are eager to meet and talk about qualitative research
