Call for Peer Reviewers | Kaleidoscope journal

full name / name of organization: 
Laura McKenzie | Durham University

Kaleidoscope is a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary journal edited by postgraduate researchers at Durham University. A key feature of Kaleidoscope is that it embodies and connects diverse subject areas in a single publication, whether in the Arts and Humanities, the Sciences, or the Social Sciences.

We are currently looking for post-doctoral and 2nd/3rd year postgraduate English Literature scholars to act as peer-reviewers for our next issue, which engages with the theme of 'Light.' The goal of peer review is to assess the quality of articles submitted for publication in a scholarly journal. It makes for an impressive addition to your CV, and will give you valuable experience in what will become an essential part of your job once you are in a full-time academic post. Successful applicants will be provided with a comprehensive peer review handbook clarifying your role and what you can expect from the process.

Applications are particularly encouraged from, but by no means limited to, scholars working on:

• Light and Modernism
• The changing nature of light in the nineteenth century
• Post-9/11 fiction
• Lightness and darkness in postcolonial literature
• Light and image

If you are interested in contributing as a peer reviewer, please send a current CV specifying you research specialisms and interests to Laura McKenzie, Kaleidoscope's Arts & Humanities Editor, at
