EHCS – Open Editorial Roles

Emotions: History, Culture, Society (EHCS) is a peer-reviewed interdisciplinary biannual journal published by Brill Publishing on behalf of the Society for the History of Emotions. EHCS is dedicated to understanding the emotions as culturally and temporally-situated phenomena, and to exploring the role of emotion in shaping human experience and action by individuals, groups, societies and cultures.

Call for Editor/s

The current editors are Katie Barclay, Andrew Lynch and Giovanni Tarantino. Due to the retirement of Andrew Lynch, we are now looking for one or more editors to join the editorial team, alongside Barclay and Tarantino. We are particularly interested in expressions of interest from emotions researchers who can expand the disciplinary, geographical and temporal breadth of the current editors (both historians of early modern Europe). This role involves full editorial responsibility for the two issues of the journal each year, including recruiting submissions, managing peer review and preparing articles for submission, proof-reading and similar activities. We are supported by our publishing team at Brill and a professional copyeditor.

Call for Book Review Editor/s

EHCS are also seeking a new book review editor or editors to take over this role from Giovanni Tarantino. This role involves identifying appropriate books and their reviewers, editing copy, and managing the timely submission of reviews. This role might be especially suitable for a an ECR scholar who would like some experience of working as part of a journal editorial team; however we welcome expressions of interest from emotions scholars at any career stage.

All roles are unremunerated.

Please send a short expression of interest to the editorial team detailing your research interests/expertise and any relevant experience by 30 September 2021.
