New on MLA Commons: “On Mentoring Graduate Students of Color”

Members of the Committee on the Literatures of People of Color recently launched a new blog on MLA Commons. In the first post, “On Mentoring Graduate Students of Color,” the former committee members Marissa K. Lopez and Daniel Heath Justice discuss the site’s development and introduce two documents on mentorship. The site also features resources related to the committee’s charge, which is to encourage dialogue across ethnic and racial boundaries and to promote intercultural perspectives on and comparative analyses of the literatures and languages of ethnic groups historically underrepresented in the United States and Canada.
