Historians of Netherlandish Art (HNA) announced a new mentorship program designed to foster connections between historians of Netherlandish art at different phases of their careers.
In light of the current global pandemic and the lasting effects that it will have on our field, HNA wants to offer new systems of support and contact across its diverse international community. With this in mind, HNA will match established academics, curators, conservators, and other professionals in the field with those at an earlier or developing stage of their careers.
Mentors may be established professors, curators, museum professionals, conservators, educators, art dealers, art world specialists, publishers, etc. Mentors are not required to have an active HNA membership, but it is strongly encouraged. Mentees may be graduate students who have completed their coursework, post-graduate scholars, postdoctoral fellows, early-career curators, conservators, or academics, or individuals seeking to pursue new areas of expertise regardless of age. Mentees must be current HNA members.
Applications for the 2020–21 academic cycle are open until 31 July 2020 for both mentors and mentees. More information about the mentorship program is available on the HNA website.
