Writing Significant Scholarship, Helping Others, and Making an Impact in Your Field: Lessons from a Senior Scholar

  • Natalia Molina Temple University Press


George J. Sánchez has modeled a new paradigm in his work with the almost one hundred undergraduate and graduate students he has mentored over the years. This article discusses the lessons I have learned from his scholarship and career over the years, lessons that I now share with my own students. In particular, his example challenges us to build and strengthen relationships with communities outside the academy, broaden our definitions of scholarship, and mobilize the complex power of storytelling in our research.
