Call for Nominations to DM Board 2017-2019

Digital Medievalist will be holding elections at the end of June 2017 for four positions to its Executive Board. Board positions are for 2-year terms and incumbents may be re-elected (for a maximum of three terms in a row). Members of the Board are responsible for the overall direction of the organisation and leading the Digital Medievalist’s many projects and programmes. This is a working board, and so it would be expected that you are willing and able to commit time to helping Digital Medievalist undertake some of its activities, like editing the journal, organising conference sessions, administering website, facebook group and news feeds, or maintaining a technical infrastructure – and there is room for any initiative you would like to take to foster the communication on digital methods in medieval studies.

For further information about the Executive and Digital Medievalist more generally please see the website, particularly:

We are now seeking nominations (including self-nominations) for the annual elections. In order to be eligible for election, candidates must be members of Digital Medievalist (membership is conferred simply by subscription to the organisation’s mailing list, dm-l) and have made some demonstrable contribution either to the DM project (e.g. to the mailing list, or the wiki, etc.), or generally to the field of digital medieval studies.
If you are interested in running for these positions or are able to recommend a suitable candidate, please contact the returning officers, Dominique Stutzmann (dominique.stutzmann [at] irht.cnrs.fr) and Lynn Ransom (lransom [at] upenn.edu), who will treat your nomination or enquiries in confidence. The nomination period will close at 23:59 UTC on Thursday, 15 June. Elections will be held by electronic ballot from Thursday, 22 June 2016, closing at 23:59 UTC on Wednesday, 7 July 2016.

Best wishes,
Dominique Stutzmann and Lynn Ransom
