Humanist Discussion Group, Vol. 32, No. 262. Department of Digital Humanities, King's College London Hosted by King's Digital Lab www.dhhumanist.org Submit to: firstname.lastname@example.org Date: 2018-12-10 13:48:34+00:00 From: email@example.com Subject: ACH seeks nominations for Exec Council elections in 2019! > From: The Association for Computers and the Humanities (ACH)
The Association for Computers and the Humanities (ACH) invites nominations for the 2019 elections, in which our members will elect three Executive Council members for four-year terms (2019-2023). We seek candidates eager to support and advance the field of digital humanities (DH) by helping to lead the ACH. Please see our blog post (http://ach.org/blog/2018/09/17/ach-2019-elections-call-for-nominations/) for more information and instructions. The election process does not require much effort: you share a short paragraph about who are, and another short paragraph about what kinds of work you might like to pursue as part of the ACH Exec. Our deadlines have been slightly extended: we ask that all nominations (names of folks who have agreed to run) are *submitted by 12/15*; *nominees have until 12/31 to submit their materials* (a few sentences about who they are, and a few sentences about what you might be interested in working on or advocating for if elected). Past examples of kinds of work candidates wanted to do include wanting to advocate for DH grad students, working toward DH being more inclusive, and working with ACH members to identify things we can do for them as their scholarly organization. Recent ACH Exec activities include discussions that led to starting an ACH 2019/etc. conference series, designing/debating a possible code of conduct for ACH event and virtual spaces, mentoring and supporting students and early-career folks (e.g. at DH2018 (http://ach.org/blog/2018/09/04/dh2018-conference/), and staking public positions (e.g. on DH conferences and the risks of crossing borders to attend them (http://ach.org/blog/2017/02/24/ach-statement-on-digital-humanities-conferences-and-events/), funding the NEH (http://ach.org/blog/2017/01/31/ach-statement-in-support-of-the-national-endowment-for-the-humanities/), and condemning the 1/27/2017 executive order (http://ach.org/blog/2017/02/16/ach-condemns-eo-01272017/). Sincerely, Amanda Visconti Chair, ACH Nominations Committee _______________________________________________ Unsubscribe at: http://dhhumanist.org/Restricted List posts to: firstname.lastname@example.org List info and archives at at: http://dhhumanist.org Listmember interface at: http://dhhumanist.org/Restricted/ Subscribe at: http://dhhumanist.org/membership_form.php
