REMINDER & EXTENSION : Call for Nominations to EADH Executive Committee

29 May 2020 - 00:00

Under the current COVID-19 outbreak and after careful consideration, EADH EC decided to extend the Call for Nominations to EADH Executive Committee until 29 May 2020. All of us are experiencing stressful times, with a number of conflicting, unexpected and urgent priorities. We want to give to the members of our community more time to find their pace as well as to decide and prepare the necessary steps for participating in the EADH EC elections. 

Alongside the extension of the nomination period, the Elections period will be also delayed given that the Annual General Meeting (AGM) won't be held in July (as the physical DH2020 is cancelled). We have decided to postpone the AGM to early autumn and we are now exploring the better ways to organize it online. The newly elected members will  be announced on that occasion.


The European Association for Digital Humanities (EADH) seeks to elect four (4) new board members for its Executive Committee for the term 2020-2023, and now opens its Call for Nominations. 

EADH highlights the importance of a diverse and representative Executive Committee, and welcomes candidates from all backgrounds. For further information, please see our diversity and inclusivity statement <>.

For each person wishing to be nominated for election, the EADH Elections Committee must receive the following three documents:

a) two nomination statements by EADH members (here, the proposers), stating the name of the person they wish to nominate (that is, the nominee). The name of the proposers and the nomination statements will not be made public;

b) a statement by the nominee, of no more than 200 words (links excluded), expressing the willingness to stand for election. Statements longer than 200 words will be disregarded.

The statements of the proposers and the statement of the nominee must be sent to no later than midnight, 29 May, 2020 (GMT).

All nominees and proposers must be members in good standing: they must have paid the 2020 membership fee of either EADH or an Associate Organisation (DhD, AIUCD, DHN, CzADH or DH Russia) no later than 31 March 2020, otherwise the nomination will be invalid. Nominees are encouraged to confirm this with their proposers in advance. Proposers may nominate only  one (1) nominee. Additional nominations received from the same proposer will be considered invalid.

Voting will take place between 22 June - 18 July 2020 (GMT). Statements by the nominees will be a matter of public record during and after the election. Nomination statements and the identity of the proposers will not be made public.

Results will be announced at the EADH AGM in early autumn (TBC).

Information about the formal structure of the Association can be found in our Constitution. 

Questions about serving on the EADH may be addressed confidentially to (Chair of the Elections Committee).

We hope you are well and please take care in these difficult times.


Best regards,

The EADH Elections committee
