The journal Anthropology of the Contemporary Middle East and Central Eurasia (ACME) is looking to recruit a new Book Review Editor and a new Film Review Editor, with the first contributed work to appear in Volume 5(1), Summer 2017/18.
Both Editors will work with the chief editor and publisher, and be responsible for liaising with publishers marketing departments (securing books/films for review, sending published reviews to the press), commissioning suitable reviewers and supplying them with books/films, and editing and readying the final work for publication. The book/film review section will be forwarded to the publishing house for copyediting and layout, and then reviewed by Editors prior to final publication. We anticipate between 6 and 12 books/films being reviewed for each instalment of the section, to be published twice a year.
A wonderful opportunity for the right candidate, this is an unpaid, volunteer position requiring a commitment of at least two years. The Editors will be expected to participate in editorial decisions for the journal, secure topically relevant review copies, recruit and coordinate a pool of reviewers, and assemble a high-quality, informative book/film review section.
ACME wishes to recruit for this position before November 2018. If you are interested, please forward a copy of your curriculum vitae, along with a brief statement about your interest in the position and an example of your professional writing to:
