American Nineteenth Century History
Deadline: 1st August 2022

About the Role

American Nineteenth Century History, the official journal of British American Nineteenth Century Historians (BrANCH), published three times a year by Taylor & Francis, seeks replacements for its current book review editors, Billy Coleman (University of Missouri) and Patrick Doyle (Royal Holloway University of London). We would like to appoint either one US-based editor or two editors, one based in the US and the other in the UK. Please apply EITHER as an individual OR as a duo.

The editor(s) will be responsible for selecting books to review for each issue (normally around a dozen titles per issue), locating appropriate reviewers, and editing submitted reviews and preparing them for publication.

As our current book review editors will complete their terms by the end of 2022, and it would be ideal for them to have some overlap with the new editor(s), we would like the new entrant(s) to be in place by 1 November 2022. The post will be for three years, with a possibility of a longer term if desired, and if agreeable to the editors and the leadership of BrANCH.

    Submitting your Application

    Please submit the following materials to Natalie Zacek, Journal’s Editor (University of Manchester).

    • An updated curriculum vitae.

    • A letter describing your interest in the post and relevant experience, with specific mention of (a) how you might maintain and increase the quality and quantity of book reviews and (b) how you would work with the reviews’ authors.

    • A statement regarding the level of support that your institution can provide you (specifically the cost of posting books to reviewers).
