Call for Executive Council Nominations
Every year, SASE holds an election for one-third of the seats on its Executive Council, with each seat coming up for election every three years. As such, the Nominations Committee now announces an open call for nominations. All current SASE members may nominate other scholars (SASE members and non-members alike) or themselves.
The Nominations Committee will collect the names sent as well as names generated directly by the Committee itself; it will strive to maximize the diversity and balance of the ballot (and subsequently, of the Executive Council) by considering various factors, such as gender, ethnicity, national origin, seniority, geographic area of appointment, academic discipline, research field, and research methods.
In order for nominations to be considered for inclusion on the ballot, they must include the email address of the nominee (as potential nominees will need to be contacted by the Committee) and proof that the nominator’s SASE membership status is up-to-date.
Nominations should be sent by email at the one of the Nomination Committee member with the subject “SASE Call for Nominations.”
The deadline for sending in nominations is 15 December 2020

SASE is committed to providing a safe and welcoming conference environment for all participants, free from discrimination and harassment based, for example, on age, race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, language, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression, disability, or socioeconomic status. Our Annual Meeting is convened for the purposes of scholarly, educational, and professional exchange. Discrimination and harassment of colleagues, students, or other conference participants undermines shared principles of equity, free inquiry, and free expression – and is considered by SASE to be a serious form of professional misconduct.
