CAA invites nominations and self-nominations for two individuals to serve on the caa.reviews Editorial Board for four-year terms, July 1, 2020–June 30, 2024. Candidates may be artists, art historians, art critics, art educators, curators, or other art professionals with stature in the field and experience writing or editing books and/or exhibition reviews; institutional affiliation is not required.
One of the editorial board seats is reserved for an Emerging Professional, defined as an active member of CAA who is in graduate school or in the first two (2) years of their career after graduate school.
CAA encourages applications from candidates with a strong record of scholarship who are committed to the imaginative development of caa.reviews. An online journal, caa.reviews is devoted to the peer review of recent books, museum exhibitions, and projects relevant to the fields of art history, visual studies, and the arts.
The editorial board advises the editor-in-chief and field editors for the journal and helps them to identify books and exhibitions for review and to solicit reviewers, articles, and other content for the journal. The editorial board guides the journal’s editorial program and may propose new initiatives for it. Members stay abreast of trends and issues in the field by attending and reporting on sessions at the CAA Annual Conference and academic conferences, symposia, and other events in their fields.
The caa.reviews Editorial Board meets three times a year, twice in the spring and fall and once at the CAA Annual Conference in February. Members also attend the annual meeting of the caa.reviews Council of Field Editors at the Annual Conference. Members pay their travel and lodging expenses to attend the meeting at the conference. Meetings in the spring and fall are currently held by teleconference. Members of all editorial boards volunteer their services to CAA without compensation.
Candidates must be current CAA members and should not currently serve on the editorial board of a competitive journal or another CAA editorial board or committee. Nominators should ascertain their nominee’s willingness to serve before submitting a name; self-nominations are also welcome. Interested applicants should submit a cover letter describing their interest in and qualifications for appointment, editorial vision and/or experience, as well as additional relevant information regarding experience commissioning and/or writing reviews and related research, curatorial, or creative projects. Please send material to managing editor Joan Strasbaugh, firstname.lastname@example.org, with either caa.reviews Editorial Board member or Emerging Professional in the subject line.
Deadline: April 15, 2020
