full name / name of organization: 
The English Association

A vacancy has arisen for a second editor of The Year’s Work in Critical and Cultural Theory. This is a fantastic opportunity to shape the discipline and track the evolution of theory.

You will work alongside Dr Emelia Quinn (University of Amsterdam) to publish the annual volumes of this publication. As editor, your responsibilities will include: commissioning contributors to produce entries; supporting contributors as they write their chapters; liaising with the publishers, Oxford University Press, and the journal’s home, the English Association.

We’re looking for applicants who: have an active connection to academic communities within and beyond the UK; like to work flexibly and responsively; have an active academic interest in critical and cultural theory.

There is a modest honorarium for the editors.

The Year’s Work in Critical and Cultural Theory is a companion volume to The Year’s Work in English Studies. It provides a narrative bibliography of published work, recording significant debates and issues of interest across a broad range of research in the humanities and social sciences. As the fields of critical and cultural studies shift, so the range and scope of the journal alters, and current volumes include chapters on Disability Studies, Digital Humanities, and Animal Studies. The Year’s Work in Critical and Cultural Theory functions as a bibliographical tool of practical use to scholars and students alike, as well as a lively collaboration with contemporary debates.

Please get in touch on hello@englishassociation.ac.uk with a CV and a short statement of 500 words outlining your relevant experience, knowledge, and skills.
