For centuries and across cultures, the relationship between students and teachers, adepts and apprentices has been central to the transfer of knowledge―the technical skills, ethos, and esoterica that transform the initiate into an expert.
But what are the reasonable boundaries and expectations that students should expect from their mentors? And what obligations, either formal or informal, are owed to those who share their knowledge and experience? Looking at traditions from the ancient world to the modern era, these scholars will discuss the nature of mentorship in different cultural contexts and how the concept of mentorship continues to resonate in contemporary classrooms.
