I am pleased to announce two new additions to SAHSA's governing body for 2013. Please note that as we received only one nomination for incoming Vice-President there will be no election this year.
Neilesh Bose, who is Assistant Professor at North Texas University, will be SAHSA's Vice-President in 2013 and President in 2014. Neilesh works on the literary and cultural history of Bengali Muslims around the turn of the 20th century
Faisal Chaudhry, who is ACLS new faculty fellow at the University of Pennsylvania, will be SAHSA's Secretary-Treasurer. Faisal's research focuses on South Asian legal history, and his background in law will be crucial as SAHSA files for non-profit status next year.
The minutes for the SAHSA informal business meeting are now available to review. Please see the attached pdf file.
We are now calling for nominations to the post of SAHSA Vice-President (2013). As you know the Vice-President will then serve as President in the following calendar. year.
Candidates will need to provide a CV and a short 1-2 page statement of their qualifications and vision for SAHSA.
The deadline for nominations is November 1. Please send nominations (and self-nominations are welcome) to me at firstname.lastname@example.org I'm also happy to answer any questions you might have.
Minutes of our meeting at Madison last Friday will be circulated shortly!
Michael S. Dodson, SAHSA President 2012
