Job: Call for Applications: Reviews Editor (post-1800) for Architectural Histories
The editorial board of Architectural Histories seeks to appoint a Reviews Editor for publications and other research-based outputs covering the history of architecture and the built environment after 1800.
The Reviews Editor is responsible for commissioning, developing and editing reviews for the journal. Taking advantage of the rapid production cycle offered by an online open access publication, Architectural Histories publishes reviews that respond to the latest releases in the field, including book publications, exhibitions and conferences.
Working closely with the Editor-in-Chief and Architectural Histories’ pre-1800 Review Editor, the new Reviews Editor will identify publications, exhibitions and conferences of interest and solicit their review from scholars active in the field. For each review commissioned, the Editor will oversee the entirety of the editorial process, from preliminary line-edits to final typesetting. The Editor is expected to deliver 10-15 reviews per year.
The ideal candidate will be well connected with scholars working on all aspects of architecture post-1800. She/he will closely monitor the state of the field, seeking to commission reviews that call attention to lasting contributions to historical and historiographical debate. The Editor should be familiar with good practice in the commissioning and editing of reviews.
This call is open to all scholars working on topics related to architectural history post-1800, regardless of background, discipline or seniority. Applications from scholars working outside the traditional centers of scholarship are strongly encouraged. Applications should consist of a CV (max. 3 pages) and a cover letter (max. 2 pages), specifying the candidate’s appropriate skills and qualities.
Applications should be emailed to Petra Brouwer, Editor-in-Chief (firstname.lastname@example.org), by no later than 15 June 2020. The new reviews editor will be appointed 1 July 2020 for a four-year term.
