Call for Nominations

2023-2027 Officers & Board

The International Sociological Association’s Research Committee on the Sociology of Religion (RC22) welcomes nominations for its 2023-2027 Officers:

10 Board Members: Two from each of five world regions: Africa, Asia/Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and North America (U.S./Canada).

Together, this group manages the Research Committee between ISA World Congresses. The duties of these various officers can be found in the Statutes on the Research Committee’s website:

Election is for a single four-year term. Board members can serve for two consecutive terms, though their re-election is not automatic. At this point, six of the current Board members have either served two terms or do not wish to run for re-election. Vacancies are in the following regions: Africa (2); Asia-Pacific (1); Europe (1); Latin America (1); North America (1). We welcome multiple candidates; the top two vote-getters in each region will serve on the 2023-2027 Board.

We need active, dedicated ISA members to run for election to these various offices. Please consider running for one of them. Please also think about people whom you would like to nominate (but get their permission before you send us their names).

The election will take place prior to the ISA World Congress of Sociology in Melbourne, Australia (June 25 – July 1, 2023). We need to receive all the nomination materials by April 15, 2023. If you are self-nominating, please send them with your nomination. If you are nominating someone else, please let them know what is needed so they can prepare.

The required materials are:
1)  A short bio, relevant to the position (150-200 words
2) A brief statement of candidacy (2-3 lines)
3) A recent picture

Please send the text as a Word doc (or similar; not a PDF) and the picture as a jpg or similar (not a PDF or Word doc).

Please, send nominations and materials — whether for yourself or for someone else — to BOTH:
