“THE DOCTOR IS IN” is a mentoring and professional development resource affiliated with the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies (ASECS).

Started in 2013 by Rebecca Shapiro (CUNY), the program offers drop-in mentoring and a physical space where ASECS members can ask informal questions on all manner of topics related to navigating the profession—from managing a dissertation committee to writing a book proposal or balancing work and family. The 2019 ASECS workshop was organized by Joel Sodano, Adela Ramos, Rebecca Shapiro, Kathleen Alves, Danielle Spratt, James Reeves, and Jason Farr.

THE DOCTOR IS IN is pleased to connect conference participants with each other for peer-to-peer support on a variety of professional and personal levels through relatively informal conversations. Scholars at any career stage are welcome to participateYou can check out the fabulous cast of volunteers in previous workshops here.

We are very excited to be participating in the ISECS International Congress on the Enlightenment to be held in Edinburgh on 14-19 July 2019, so if you will be in “Aulde Reekie” this summer, please consider connecting with DOCTOR IS IN ISECS 2019.
