Call For Associate Editors and Social Media Editor
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019
About the Roles
Stanislavski Studies: Practice Legacy and Contemporary Theatre, is a journal published twice a year, in print and online, by Routledge, Taylor & Francis, now in its seventh year of publication.
The journal currently has an editorial team of five: an editor in chief, 2 editors, a reviews editor and a social media editor (currently vacant). The editorial team is supported by an advisory board, which includes a range of international subject specialists.
We now seek to increase the editorial team with the appointment of 2 Associate Editors, and a new Social Media Editor.
We seek three highly creative, motivated, organised and collegiate individuals with demonstrable specialisms in theatre. Ideally, the candidates should have general European and World Theatre interests to complement the existing team specialisations, and we also welcome those with special interests in the electronic and broadcast media, film and television.
The Associate Editors will work as part of a team, helping to source suitable material for publication and undertaking the editing of at least one article in each edition of the journal.
These roles will appeal to those who are developing interests in academic publishing, and who seek to develop editorial skills. Although these are not “training “roles as such, the editorial team will gladly offer mentoring and support to suitable candidates.
You should be:
- An active researcher of theatre and related subject areas with a knowledge of current published work in the field.
- Developing a national and international network of academic contacts.
- An individual with some experience of editing and/or curating theatre related written work.
- Highly organised, efficient and with excellent communication skills.
- IT literate and able to use WP programmes, principally MS Word.
The Associate Editor’s responsibilities will include:
- Contributing to the development of the journal and editing material (based upon 1 article in each edition).
- Establishing relationships with appropriate practitioners and scholars and encouraging high quality, vibrant content as submissions.
- Working closely with the other editors to ensure a fit with the ethos and style of the journal.
- Liaising with the Journal’s editorial team and occasional guest editors to provide regular updates on the status and content of materials for publication.
- Acting as an advocate for the journal at conferences and symposia.
- Taking part in editorial meetings (held by Skype).
- Working with production editorial staff at Routledge, Taylor and Francis as required.
Social Media Editor
The Social Media Editor will be responsible for developing the journal’s social media presence online.
- The applicant should be familiar with a range of social media platforms and able to publish material and stimulate wider interest in the journal’s activities.
- This role might suit a graduate student who is interested in developing on-line media and online publishing skills.
All appointments will be for a fixed period of three years, which will then be reviewed. In keeping with the rest of the roles in the team, these posts are unpaid.
How to Apply
To apply please send a CV and a one-page statement of your relevant skills, and interests to Paul Fryer (firstname.lastname@example.org). Applications will be reviewed by a panel made up from editorial team and advisory board members.
Deadline for applications is Monday 30th September.
