Co-Editor positions for #German Studies Association of Ireland - Germanistik in Ireland
Expressions of interest sought for two Co-Editor positions (English native speaker and German native speaker) for the Yearbook of the German Studies Association of Ireland Germanistik in Ireland for a term of office beginning with Vol. 14 (2019). We, the committee and I’m sure the German Studies community in Ireland at large, believe it is vitally important that this scholarly publication be sustained moving forward to promote the vibrancy of research in German Studies in Ireland, and in this vein efforts are being made to open the yearbook to an even wider audience than its traditional readership.
The Yearbook appears annually in the autumn and features research in the broad area of German Studies, including contributions on literature, film and visual culture, cultural studies, history, linguistics and DaF. Contributions to the Yearbook are in German, English or Irish and showcase German Studies on the island of Ireland and beyond. Each year the Yearbook contains a special themed section and a general section, plus book reviews and reports of conferences or other significant events in the German Studies calendar. In addition, special themed sections may be guest-edited.
The yearbook is the cornerstone of our scholarly activities and reflects the vibrancy of the research community in Ireland and the warm and productive links we have forged with colleagues from around the world. In the twelve years since Germanistik in Ireland was launched, we have published articles by scholars from countries across Europe, North America and Africa, and we have produced themed sections covering an exciting and diverse range of issues, from border crossings to Schiller and modernity, from the aftermath of postmodernity to utopias, dystopias and constructions of happiness.
The two co-editors of the yearbook are native speakers of English and German respectively. They are usually affiliated to a third level institution on the island of Ireland and are members of the GSAI. In order to ensure continuity editors generally serve a minimum term of three editions. As calls for papers are issued by late summer or very early autumn in the year preceding publication, it is expected that the new editorial team would be in place by summer 2018.
If you are interested in this role, please contact the Co-Chairs of the GSAI Clive Earls email@example.com and Catherine Spencer firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like further information about the work involved in editing the journal, you are very welcome to contact the current editor Gillian Pye at email@example.com.
