The European Society for Environmental History invites all members to nominate board candidates for election. Elections will be held at the Ordinary General Meeting of ESEH at its bi-annual conference in Versailles, France, on 1 July 2015.

Nominations of candidates for all posts on the Board are welcome, which includes:

Please send nominations to the chair of the Nominating Committee: Jan Oosthoek (kjwoosthoek [at] eh-resources.org) by 1 February 2015 at the latest. Please include a one-page CV, or link to the webpage of the nominee, with details of the person’s current post, previous posts, degrees, main publications, research grants and projects, experience in academic societies, and any other information you find relevant.

The Nominating Committee will follow-up on all nominations. ESEH has been working over the last few years to make the process of nominations and elections more open and democratic, and we have introduced competitive elections wherever possible. Thusnominations will be accepted for all positions regardless if the current holder is eligible for re-election.
