The Council for Museum Anthropology of the American Anthropological Association, announces a search for a new editor of Museum Anthropology, the section’s peer reviewed journal. Museum Anthropology is published twice yearly by Wiley-Blackwell. It appears in print, for members of the section and for institutional subscribers, as well as on AnthroSource, AAA’s portal for all of its publications. The new editor would officially assume the position as of July 1, 2009, but we believe the role will be easier with considerable overlap time with the current editor–including attendance at CMA’s executive board and AAA’s editors board meetings at the 2008 AAA meetings in San Francisco. The editor also serves as an appointed Council for Museum Anthropology executive board officer.
Individuals interested in applying for the position should contact either Catherine S. Fowler (University of Nevada, Reno, csfowler (at) unr (dot) edu), president of the section, or editor Jason Baird Jackson (Indiana University, museanth (at) indiana (dot) edu) for additional information. We are also requesting a letter of interest that indicates your experience and ideas for the journal, and a recent curriculum vita.
