Journal of Festive Studies Seeks Review Editor

Professional Opportunities

The Journal of Festive Studies is looking for a Reviews Editor to join its volunteer-based editorial team. JFS is an open access journal that publishes once a year, drawing together academics from all disciplines who share an interest in festivities, including holiday celebrations, family rituals, carnivals, religious feasts, processions and parades, civic commemorations, etc.

JFS also has an active reviews section and a list of books it would like reviewed. The Reviews Editor would work with the editorial team to expand that list and assign reviewers for the books. The Reviews Editor would familiarize themselves with H-Net’s Reviews Management System to request books for ordering, finding and adding reviewers, and finding new relevant titles. The Reviews Manager would act as the primary editor for approximately 5 reviews for each issue and shepherd the article through the rest of the editorial process.
