Emeritus Faculty?



Greetings all,

I wanted to ask: can you research with an emeritus faculty member as your mentor? 

I am asking because I am interested in working with someone who is emeritus, and I am not sure if sending an email to that person would be a good idea.

I am going to be applying for PhD programs soon, and I would like to get some perspective on this.

The school is Stanford; Department is English; and the faculty member is Yvonne-Yarbo Bejarano. She is known for her research in Queer, Latinx performance, drama, and overall in Queer/Latinx Literature. 

What should I do?

Emeritus faculty have retired, so it is unlikely they are taking on any new students. The term is designed to still give them an honorary title while indicating their status as a retired professor.
