The UF Graduate School
I am most pleased to announce a timely professional development workshop - sponsored by the Consulate General of Canada and the CONNECT program - to be convened at the University of Florida on Thursday, March 25th, 2010.
The workshop is designed to introduce doctoral candidates, department chairs, graduate student advisers, program directors and faculty to the extensive network of academic professional development opportunities in Canadian Studies throughout the United States. Scholarly associations, funding resources to assist the development of research and teaching, publishing outlets, etc... will be reviewed.
The workshop will be held on the campus of the University of Florida in Gainesville and run from 12:00-3:00, including lunch and refreshment breaks. An honorarium of $100.00 is provided to participants.
In addition to encouraging you to attend the workshop, could I also please ask for your assistance in identifying and distributing this invitation to departmental colleagues, and in particular, to all doctoral candidates in your program.
All doctoral candidates potentially interested in the study of Canada are welcome, regardless of whether they have just started a doctoral program or are at the advanced ABD stage.
Please also feel free to forward this invitation to interested colleagues at other institutions.
I have attached a flyer containing additional information on the workshop. Please feel free to also disseminate this in your department.
For your information, this workshop is being sponsored by CONNECT in partnership with the Canadian Consulate, Miami. CONNECT, a joint initiative of the Center for the Study of Canada at State University of New York College at Plattsburgh and the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada, is a national program designed to promote the growth and development of Canadian Studies throughout the U.S. higher education community.
