Call for Editorial Board members - English Journal

Posted by rsl11 at Feb 15, 2021 01:00 PM |

English is looking for ten new members to join the journal's editorial board. Board members will be expected to peer-review submissions in their subject area, and also to promote the journal more broadly within that area. We encourage expressions of interest from colleagues across the discipline, but have particular vacancies in the following subject areas:

  • Medieval Writing
  • Early Modern Writing
  • The Writing of Empire and Colonisation
  • Decolonial, Postcolonial, Indigenous, and Diasporic Writing
  • Non-standard Englishes

While Editorial Board positions are traditionally held by collegues with seniority, we recognise that such work can contribute to the career progression of more junior colleagues, and so we aim to appoint to the Board from different career stages. English, as the academic journal of the English Association, aims to speak both to, and for, the discipline of English studies, and we want to ensure that the make-up of the Editorial Board is representative of the diversity of expertise, background, and experience within the discipline today.

For expressions of interest, please email the journal address:, including brief cover letter and CV with relevant experience and publication activity. We are happy to reply to enquiries. Closing date for expressions of interest: 15 March 2021.
