Call for Nominations 2020

In advance of the International Studies Association annual convention in Honolulu, 25-28 March 2020, the Feminist Theory and Gender Studies section invites nominations for the following positions on its executive committee:

  • 2020-23 Section Chair (one position)
  • 2020-23 Program Chair (one position)
  • 2020-22 Members-at-Large (three positions)
  • 2020-21 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, Dr Catherine Eschle, by 13 December 2019.

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