12 Feb

Call for Book Review Editor
Submission Deadline: March 1, 2018

Student Anthropologist, the journal of the National Association of Student Anthropologists, is currently accepting applications for a Book Review Editor for our 2018 issue (due out at the end of the year). The Book Review Editor is primarily responsible for soliciting books and manuscripts, working with authors throughout the manuscript revision process, and providing general support to the editorial process.

Specifically, the Book Review Editor:

  • Identifies potential books for review and solicits desk copies from publishers
  • Solicits book review manuscripts by posting Calls for Book Reviews
  • Identifies promising students and invites them to submit manuscripts
  • Works with authors throughout the revision process and adheres to the journal’s policies and expectations for book reviews

If you are interested in submitting an application, please send the following to the Interim Editor of Student Anthropologist at studentanthropologist@gmail.com.

  1. Full name
  2. University Affiliation
  3. A current CV
  4. A brief response to: What book would you recommend for review and why?
  5. Optional, but highly recommended: A book review sample (from a journal or blog)

It is recommended that Book Review Editors are currently enrolled in an anthropology program at the graduate level, with a special preference for post-fieldwork Ph.D. students. However, any college student currently enrolled in an anthropology-related program may apply. *You do not need to be a U.S. citizen or attending a U.S. college to apply.*

Please read some Book Reviews from previous issues of Student Anthropologist and familiarize yourself with Reviewing Ethnographic Texts — A Rubric.

The deadline for applications is March 1, 2018.
