Join ICA LGBTQ Interest Group leadership team!

Posted By Lukasz Szulc, Friday, June 26, 2020

Dear members,

It’s election time at ICA and our LGBTQ Interest Group is looking for new officers to join our team. This year we have openings for the following positions:
- Co-chair, 4-year post between mid-2021 and mid-2025
- Secretary, 3-year post between mid-2021 and mid-2024
- Award Committee members, 2-year posts between mid-2021 and mid-2023 (two openings)

All officers are elected by our members in the popular vote. To candidate, you will have to send your candidate statement to our current co-chairs, Shinsuke Eguchi (seguchi@unm.edu) and Lukasz Szulc (l.szulc@sheffield.ac.uk) by 24 July 2020. The statement should be one paragraph with 2,000 characters, spaces and punctuation included (about 300 words). 

Your statement for any of the positions should be not so much a bio but a first-person account of your own career, relationship with ICA, and any plan for what you hope to accomplish if elected. Additionally, we ask you to address how you will contribute to diversify the group in terms of representation, participation, and scholarship. In your statement you should talk about how you would contribute to the group's diversity in terms of: 

- the various components of your identity (this does not refer only to gender and sexuality, but could also include things like race, ethnicity, national origin, and other relevant aspects)

- the kinds of research and teaching that you do, and any other relevant activities (e.g. if your scholarship is tied to participation in LGBTQ activism, that's worth mentioning, but it's not a requirement to have that on your resume!)

You can find more information about the positions and eligibility criteria below. You can learn more about our interest group here: https://www.icahdq.org/group/glbtstudies and you are welcome to email Shinsuke and Lukasz with any questions you have. Current officers are not eligible for their current position.

All the best,

Shinsuke Eguchi and Lukasz Szulc
