H-ItalianDiaspora: Seeking New Editors  


The current editors of H-ItalianDiaspora are seeking new editors to guide the network into the new decade. We have been editing H-ItalianDiaspora since Nov. 2016 and are ready to transition out of our editor rolls.  


The network is looking for one or more editors to take on duties and responsibilities on a voluntary basis. Editors mainly moderate discussion posts and general announcements. There is also an exciting opportunity (optional) to develop new content based on your interest and initiative, such as developing Teaching and Research Resources, Conference Reports, and Cross-Network Projects.  


A minimum of a three -year commitment is required for this role. The work is entirely completed online and there are no required regular meetings or reports. New editors must complete an online technical course in order to learn the H-Net system. The current editors will transition out of the roll.


How to Apply: Deadline December 15, 2020


Please send your CV and a cover letter demonstrating your commitment to and expertise in the field of Italian Diaspora studies, broadly understood, by email to:

Laura Ruberto (lruberto@peralta.edu) and Joseph Sciorra (joseph.sciorra@qc.cuny.edu).



This is a voluntary position: The H-Net is a non-profit organization run by academics and built around a committed community of volunteers.  


If you are interested in learning more, please reply to this message or contact one of us directly.
