ABOUT THE MSA BOARD:
Since our inception over a decade ago, the MSA membership has grown =
to almost 1000. Most of the organization=92s work is done by volunteers =
on the MSA Board and their committees, with the assistance of an MSA =
administrator. Therefore, those deciding to run for election should =
be prepared to make a substantial time commitment to MSA. Board =
members also work individually and collectively to build the =
membership base, and to communicate with members and the larger =
academy concerning the Modernist Studies Association. The MSA Board =
is responsible for planning and executing the annual meeting in =
conjunction with representatives of the host institution; we believe =
that the liveliest and most provocative conferences result from =
attention to diversity of representation on the fronts of discipline, =
nation, race, and gender on the Board, among the membership, and on =
the annual program. Our most recent conferences in Long Beach =
(2007), Nashville (2008) and Montreal (2009) have further diversified =
our membership and increased interdisciplinary and multi-cultural =
panel offerings. We expect no less of our future conferences at =
Victoria (2010), Buffalo (2011) and Las Vegas (2012).
