The Japanese since 1900 forum’s executive committee seeks nominations, including self nominations, for candidates and alternate candidates to stand for election on the committee. This year we need to fill two positions (term 2020-2025 and 2021-2026) so please consider self-nominating as a way to help promote East Asian presence in MLA. Please contact forum chair Molly Des Jardin (firstname.lastname@example.org) by January 25. Nominations must be submitted by Jan. 28. The election will be held at the end of 2020, with results announced in December.
