*/Early Modern Women: An Interdisciplinary Journal/*

CALL FOR EDITORS

THE FOUNDING EDITORS SEEK AN EDITORIAL TEAM OF 2-3 EDITORS TO SUCCEED THEM.

The Center for Renaissance & Baroque Studies at the University of
Maryland, former publishers of /Early Modern Women: An Interdisciplinary
Journal/, officially closed July 23, 2010 due to budget cuts. The
current editors of /EMWJ/—Adele Seeff (UMD), Jane Donawerth (UMD), Diane
Wolfthal (Rice)—will continue their production of the Journal at least
through June 30, 2010 and would be available for co-editing through
December 2011. **

The Arizona Center for Medieval & Renaissance Studies (ACMRS) has
graciously offered to take over the design and much of the
administrative work of the journal, and will continue to publish and
distribute as they have since 2007.

The founding editors are seeking an editorial team of two to three
editors in different fields of early modern studies to preserve the
interdisciplinary character of /EMWJ/. Proposals should therefore come
from a pair or team of potential editors.

The team of editors would be responsible for:

· first-round reviewing of submissions

· choosing outside reviewers

· offering editorial suggestions

· assembling and sending suggestions from editors and readers to authors

· sending essays to the Editorial Board for votes

· inviting some submissions

· overseeing the choice of the annual Forum topic

· sending finished revisions to ACMRS for copy-editing

· meeting annually at the Sixteenth Century Studies Conference or the
Attending to Women Symposium with the EMWJ Editorial Board and reporting
to SSEMW

· and other tasks related to the pre-publication phase of a scholarly
journal.

Editors will be expected to deliver the final edited copy of each issue
to ACMRS by July 1, in time for an October publication date. Editors
should expect an average of six hours of pro bono work each week
year-round, with fluctuations over the course of the year.

All managing and editing responsibilities will be handled by ACMRS:
subscription records and bookkeeping, logging submissions and reviews,
receiving and mailing books for reviews, advertisements, copy-editing,
typesetting, final proofreading, printing, etc.

The ideal proposal will come from candidates who are specialists in
early modern women’s or gender studies whose disciplines balance
literature and history (or art history or music, etc.). The editorial
team should have strong support from a Chair, Dean, or Provost.

The current editors will be available for advice and support to ease the
transition. The transition might include a period when new and current
editors overlap for a period of time.

Please send a statement describing your interest and qualifications to:

Editors

/Early Modern Women: An Interdisciplinary Journal/

0139 Taliaferro Hall

University of Maryland

College Park, MD 20742

Or, send to emwjournal@umd.edu. Electronic submissions are encouraged.

1. Statement of interest

2. Current CVs for all editors

3. Signed letter of support from a Chair, Dean, or Provost (support
might include financial support, travel funds, a staff person, graduate
assistant, or work-study student, etc.)

4. Indication of possible start date, preferably before June 2011.

Editing experience is desirable but not required. A commitment to the
field of Early Modern Women and Gender Studies and to collaborative
scholarship is essential.

*DEADLINE for application: December 1, 2010*

For more information about the Journal please see,
www.emwjournal.umd.edu, or contact the journal at emwjournal@umd.edu, or
