Mentoring as a collective relationality

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


Mentoring suggests didactic knowledge transmission, the mentor as trusted advisor training junior colleagues. There are alternative, more open and connected conceptions of mentoring practices (Nahmad-Williams & Taylor, 2015). This “mentoring moment” builds on work inspired by post-humanist and new material feminist inquiry (Taylor & Hughes, 2016; Koro-Ljungberg, 2016), proposing mentoring in undisciplined qualitative research as a collective relationality.
