David Hornsby, Carleton’s associate vice-president (Teaching and Learning), has been elected to the International Studies Association’s (ISA) governing council as vice-president for the 2020-2021 term.
Hornsby will hold one of three VP positions.
“Given the size and relevance of the ISA—it is essentially “the” body for my discipline and the annual conference attracts over 5,000 people from around the world,” he said. “Being elected to this role is a real privilege and reflects well on how international affairs at Carleton is viewed in other spaces and places.
“Given my academic appointment in the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs, I hope my role will encourage students to get involved and contribute to international affairs scholarship.”
Representing more than 100 countries, the ISA has 6,500 members worldwide and is one of the oldest associations focused on understanding international, transnational and global affairs.
“I have been involved with the ISA as a member since 2010,” said Hornsby. “I have played various roles as a section program co-chair, member-at-large of the governing council, member of the professional rights and responsibilities committee, and now as a VP.”
During his tenure, Hornsby will be on ISA’s executive committee and will chair the Professional Rights and Responsibilities committee that oversees the code of conduct and addresses ethical matters. He will also work with colleagues to advance the participation of scholars from the global south and focus on the importance of teaching to disciplinary advancement.
“Being engaged with the ISA is critical to one’s development as an international affairs scholar as it provides an opportunity to network and be involved in shaping the discipline through scholarly debate, discussion and collaboration,” said Hornsby.
