The annual General Meeting of the Digital Humanities in the Nordic Countries (DHN) is to be held in Riga in connection to the DHN conference 17-20 March 2020. Board members for the next election period will be elected before 10 March, and the nomination committee therefore opens the call for nominations. Board members are elected for a 3-year period.
The term of three of the current Board members, Bente Maegaard (Denmark), Ditte Laursen (Denmark), Olga Holownia (UK/Iceland), runs out. Bente Maegaard is not a candidate for re-election. You can see the full board at the website: http://dig-hum-nord.eu/about-dhn/board-members/
