CALL FOR NOMINATIONS FOR EDITOR(S)
Hypatia: A Journal of Feminist Philosophy is seeking an editor, co-editors, or an editorial team to serve a five year term, beginning July 1, 2013. The journal issues a call for nominations for editor(s) every five years in order to consider new directions for the journal and to encourage others to get involved.
We encourage self-nominations as well as nominations of others. Self-nominations will be accepted until May 1, 2012; those wishing to nominate others should submit your nominations no later than March 1, 2012.
Hypatia is the preeminent journal for feminist philosophy; it has a wide international readership and a robust institutional subscription base. It serves as an important resource not only for philosophers, but for all those interested in philosophical issues raised by feminism, including interdisciplinary women's and gender studies scholars. The journal publishes work covering a wide range of philosophical traditions and topics, and therefore we encourage nominations of editors who have diverse interests and expertise in sub-areas and methodologies of Philosophy and Feminist Studies. Candidates should have a record of publication in feminist philosophy; some previous editorial experience is desirable. Hypatia is committed to the inclusion of the scholarship of feminists of color, trans-feminists, transnational feminists, queer and differently-abled feminist philosophers. We encourage nominations of editors who write from these standpoints. Individuals constituting an editorial team need not be members of the same institution. Candidates (or at least one member of an editorial team) should be at an institution with graduate students in Philosophy or Gender/Women’s Studies who can serve as managing editors and editorial assistants. Candidates who prefer to co-edit and/or construct an editorial team should indicate how they would share the work of the journal. Candidates should also indicate what kinds of institutional support they expect to receive.
If you are nominating yourself (or co-editors, or a team), please send a CV (or CVs for each member of the editorial team), a brief statement of the directions in which you would like to take Hypatia, and a brief account of your relevant experience. If you are nominating a team please also include a statement that indicates how the work of editing the journal will be shared and where the journal will be housed. If you are nominating others, please send a letter briefly stating your reasons for nominating them, as well as their institutional/postal addresses, telephone numbers and email addresses. We will contact them and request that they provide the same materials as self-nominators should they wish to be considered.
Initial applications received by May 1, 2012 will be reviewed and a subset of applicants invited to submit a full proposal. The full proposals must be sent by October 1, 2012. All proposals will be judged on their merits.
Instructions for preparation of full proposals will be posted on the Hypatia website.
