In advance of the International Studies Association annual convention, 6-9 April 2021, the Feminist Theory and Gender Studies section invites nominations for the following positions on its executive committee:

  • 2021-24 Section Chair (one position)
  • 2021-24 Program Chair (one position)
  • 2021-23 Communications Officer (one position)
  • 2021-23 Members-at-Large (three positions)
  • 2021-22 Graduate Student Member (two positions)

During their tenure, all elected officials are required to participate in FTGS executive committee meetings at the annual ISA conventions, respond to email communications and contribute to administrative activities. Please see the form below for details of the specific responsibilities of each position and of how to nominate. Completed nomination forms should be emailed to the chair of the nomination committee, Tom Gregory, by the new deadline of 19 February 2021.

We encourage members to share this call widely and to consider nominating themselves or others. As we are keen to extend the pool of nominations beyond those who are well-established and well-connected within FTGS, we are open to nominations of those new to, returning to, or considering joining the section. We also welcome job-share applications for the Program Chair and Section Chair posts. You are welcome to email Tom Gregory – or any member of the executive committee – with informal enquiries about the positions, or the nomination process, or for help with finding a partner to job share.
