Hi all,

Since it would be really nice to encourage diversity among our 
candidates (and upcoming executive), let me encourage you to circulate 
this call for nominations and also to paraphrase it or translate it into 
other languages if you think that might encourage participation from 
underrepresented groups.

We've also posted this call to our website: 

If you would be interested in posting a translation this announcement to 
our webpage in addition to or instead of circulating it by email 
(globaloutlookdh.org has very robust support for multi-lingual pages), 
please feel free to do so. Those who have done that in the past will 
know how to access the site. If you've never done it before, please feel 
free to contact me for an account!

Global Outlook::Digital Humanities is holding elections under its new
bylaws. In subsequent years, we are supposed to hold our elections in
January. For this first year, the elections are being held in February.

The new bylaws require an elected executive of 8 members. In this first
year, all 8 positions are vacant. In subsequent years, half the board
will come up for election, meaning we'll always have some continuity.
The executive chooses a chair from among its membership and appoints all
the officers the organisation requires. The executive is responsible for
setting policy for the organisation.

Anybody who is a subscriber to globaloutlookdh-l may stand as a
candidateand/or vote in the election . As always at GO::DH, we are
really eager to encourage regional, linguistic, economic, and cultural
diversity among our governing body, so we especially encourage people
who feel their communities are not reflected in the broader world of DH
to stand for election.

The elections will follow a two week nomination period. The nomination
period closes February 15. You can nominate anybody who is a member of
the globaloutlookdh-l list, including yourself, as a candidate, though
we ask that you check with your nominee first. Although this is our
first nomination period, experience at other organisations suggests that
self-nominations will be the norm rather than the exception.

For this first year, half the people elected to the board will be
elected to a one year (renewable) term and half will be elected to a two
year (renewable) term. In submitting nominations, could you indicate if
you or your nominee would prefer a one or a two year term.

The returning officer for this election is Mia Angelica
Alcantara-Santiago. Please send nominations to her at
nominations at globaloutlookdh.org.
