The ASPHS is looking for nominations for the two open members-at-large positions on the Board of Directors. Please send your nominations to the three members of the Nominating Committee (Mark Molesky, Max Deardorff, and Ana Cristina Roque) – the deadline has been extended to Monday, February 22. When contemplating people to nominate, we ask that you take into consideration field and gender representativeness as well as diversity of academic status (from early career scholars to full professors, both docents and researchers). Please also consider whether prospective nominees will be able to invest part of their time on ASPHS matters (board issues and conference attendance, etc.). All nominees must be members in good standing (you should be able to log in with the link on the upper right and see your membership status). Members may nominate themselves. If you are unsure of your membership status or have any questions, please reach out to webmaster Jodi Campbell or ASPHS President Pamela Radcliff.
