Call for Editors

June 11, 2010

As an editor at /thirdspace/ I wanted to post our new call for editors:

The editors of /thirdspace: a journal of feminist theory and culture/ want you to join our team. We are looking for feminist scholars to strengthen our editorial working group and help sustain /thirdspace/ as a prime online journal for the best international work in feminist theory and culture.

Founded in 2000, our mandate is to produce a peer-reviewed journal, offering work in both English and French, that presents the best in scholarship on feminist theory and culture, broadly conceived. Our priority is enabling the publication of dynamic and cutting edge feminist scholarship within the modern climate of a profit-driven and competitive publishing industry. Our open-access model has been enormously successful in terms of readership, and can be viewed at: http://www.thirdspace.ca

We are seeking feminist scholars for the following roles:

Proofreaders

Layout editors

Section editors

The journal’s operations are conducted primarily through online contact (e-mail, instant messaging, the open access journal system). All editors must have regular access to e-mail and the web, and be comfortable with virtual collaboration. Editor duties include: reviewing submissions for suitability; soliciting referees to review articles; copyediting; and preparing submissions for final publication on the website. Other duties include fundraising, promotion of the journal, and soliciting submissions.

One position is reserved for scholars who are capable of editing submissions in French at a high academic level and performing English-French translation, as well as enthusiasm for promoting the journal to the francophone community and soliciting submissions from French-speaking scholars.

At this time, our editorial positions are non-stipendiary, as our insistence on open access has limited our opportunities for funding.

For all applicants, please indicate your experience in editing academic work, the strengths you would bring to the position, and the scholarly communities you are involved in. We welcome applications from emerging and early-career scholars (including senior ABDs, post-doctoral fellows, and new independent scholars).

Desirable, but not required, assets include: fluency in French; experience in fundraising and promotion; and HTML/web design experience.

The position(s) will commence in August 2010.

Please send a CV, a short letter of interest, and your contact details (including e-mail address) as a Word attachment by July 1 2010 to:

info@thirdspace.ca

We will be in correspondence with all applicants.
