The German Studies Association is pleased to announce the results of the recent elections to the Vice Presidency and the Board. The Vice President will serve for two years in that office (2015-16), after which she will automatically serve as President for the following two years. The newly elected Board members will serve for three years (2015-17).
Our Vice President-elect is Professor Mary Lindemann (History, University of Miami). The newly elected Board members are:
German Literature and Culture: Professor Jennifer Kapczynski (Washington University in St. Louis)
History and Social Sciences: Professor H. Glenn Penny (University of Iowa)
History and Social Sciences: Professor Jared Poley (Georgia State University)
In addition, the members approved a bylaws change that establishes the Fundraising Committee as a standing committee of the Association.
Our deep appreciation and gratitude go out to all those who agreed to serve as candidates in these elections. Without each of you, the German Studies Association simply could not function! We are very much in your debt!
