ISA HQ is very pleased to announce the arrival of our newest team member, Dr. Kristy A. Belton. Kristy received her PhD in 2014 in political science and was most recently a post-doctoral fellow in the Human Rights Center at the University of Dayton. At ISA HQ, Kristy will be working closely with all staff members, but especially on the programming side of our operations with Lembe Tiky and Alex Walker. Among the projects specifically under Kristy’s charge are the Career Courses, Innovative Panels, and the Early Career Scholar Town Hall among other projects throughout the year.

As the ISA community knows, Dr. Andrea Gerlak has been a central figure around our Association for many years as a member, but also as a highly valued member of the headquarters staff since 2006. But now it is time for Andrea to move on to a faculty position in the Geography Department at the University of Arizona starting this fall semester. So it is with much regret that ISA bids farewell to Andrea at HQ, but we wish her well in the coming years in this next phase of her professional and scholarly life. Please join us all in wishing her well in the weeks, months and years ahead.

The International Studies Association (ISA), the world’s largest association of scholars in the field, strongly condemns the recent assault on academic freedom in Turkey. ISA, with many members from Turkey, sincerely calls upon the Turkish government to restore the fundamentals of academic freedom immediately and to revoke all restrictions on travel, professional activity and general scholarly conduct for Turkish academics. We also strongly oppose the summary dismissal of academics from their positions without due process.
