Book Review Editor, Eighteenth-Century Studies

The Executive Board of ASECS seeks nominations and applications for a three-year (renewable) appointment as Book Review Editor for Eighteenth-Century Studies, beginning July 1, 2011. The Book Review Editor receives and requests books from U.S. and foreign publishers, decides which books will be reviewed, solicits reviews from appropriate scholars, enforces word limits and deadlines, edits reviews, organizes and solicits review essays, and works closely with the ECS editorial staff. Since ECS reviews books of importance in a variety of disciplines and of interest to ASECS members in general, the Book Review Editor must have wide familiarity with the field of eighteenth-century studies, extensive professional contacts, and demonstrated organizational skills. The search committee is especially interested in interdisciplinary teams of at least two people from the same institution or location. Teams of two or more people should designate one of their number as a chief editor. The Society currently provides $4,000 annually to help defray the cost of postage, telephone, and related operating expenses. In addition, travel support for the editor or a member of the editorial team to the annual meeting may be requested. Please submit nominations and applications (letter of interest that outlines the applicant’s qualifications and CV) by December 1, 2010 to:

Byron R. Wells, Executive Director, ASECS
