CALL FOR APPLICANTS - BC STUDIES BLOG CURATOR
BC Studies is seeking an early career scholar (ideally a doctoral student) to curate the BC Studies Blog.
The BCS blog, like the journal, focuses on British Columbia and provides a regional link between disciplines in the arts and social sciences, between larger analytical literatures and local archival collections, and between the scholarly community and passionate generalists. Content on the blog is both solicited and contributed, and the blog curator will work with submissions from a number of fields including anthropology, archaeology, archives, art, art history, demography, economics, education, first nations and indigenous studies, gender studies, geography, history, linguistics, literature, museology, music, photography, political science, and sociology. The blog curator will be responsible for publishing content on a weekly schedule.
The appointment will be for a period of one or two years. It includes an honorarium of $750pa and designation as the Blog Curator for BC Studies. The Blog Curator will work closely with the editorial group (including the Editor and Managing Editor of the journal), but will have considerable opportunity to exercise initiative and shape the content of the blog. We expect this work to take place beyond the BC Studies office.
Those interested in the position should submit the following to Leanne Coughlin, Managing Editor, BC Studies at firstname.lastname@example.org:
- professional CV (with specific details about current graduate program status)
- a statement indicating the applicant’s familiarity with social media platforms, and especially blog programs
- a one- to two- page statement outlining the applicant’s vision for the blog and the contributions that s/he would hope to see it make to the interdisciplinary community of scholarship to which BC Studies is addressed
Application deadline is 15 October 2016
