AAG seeks GeoHumanities co-editor – extended due date for applications
The American Association of Geographers (AAG) seeks applications for the position of co-editor of GeoHumanities. The new co-editor, whose responsibilities include overseeing the solicitation, review, and publication of scholarly articles for the journal, will be appointed for a four-year editorial term beginning January 1, 2023.
The aim of the journal is to draw on and further explore the multifaceted scholarly conversations between geography and the humanities that have been evolving over the past decade. As such, the journal serves as a home for the critical and creative interdisciplinary work of artists, authors, historians, geographers, literary and feminist theorists, environmentalists, philosophers, and others working across a broad spectrum of disciplines, and at scales from the personal and local to the international and global. In support of these goals, the editorial candidate should possess demonstrated expertise in Geography-Humanities scholarship, experience working in and with interdisciplinarity, a distinguished record of scholarly achievement, and a commitment to working constructively with authors during the review process. Institutional support for the new editor (especially time released from teaching) is desirable but not mandatory. The AAG will provide a stipend of $10,000 per year to be used for expenses and honorarium at the editor’s discretion.
The editor will work in coordination with the AAG Publications Director. The Publications Director bears primary responsibility for the logistics of processing manuscripts and for assembling and coordinating the publication of each journal issue in collaboration with the editors and the journal’s publisher. Editor candidates, therefore, should share the AAG Council’s vision of an accessible, decentralized, and collaborative editorship for GeoHumanities.
The application package should include a complete CV along with a one-page statement that addresses the prospective editor’s qualifications for the job, including previous editorial experience. Complete application packages should be submitted by e-mail to Jennifer Cassidento at jcassidento [at] aag [dot] org by January 21, 2022.
