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, the AAA’s portal for all of its publications. The new editor would officially assume the position as of July 1, 2012, 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 2011 AAA meetings in Montreal, Canada. The editor also oversees the journal’s blog and serves as an appointed Council for Museum Anthropology executive board officer. Financial support for editorial staff is negotiated each fiscal year with the CMA Board.
Individuals interested in applying for the position should contact the current editors Chip Colwell-Chanthaphonh and Steve Nash at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information. We are also requesting a brief letter of interest that indicates your experience and ideas for the journal, and a recent curriculum vita. The deadline is April 1, 2011.
The final choice of the next editor will be made by the current CMA Board of Directors.
