The Art Bulletin Editorial Board invites nominations and self-nominations for the position of reviews editor for a three-year term July 1, 2021–June 30, 2024 (with service as incoming reviews editor designate July 1, 2020–June 30, 2021). The Art Bulletin, published quarterly by CAA, features leading scholarship in the English language in all aspects of art history as practiced in the academy, museums, and other institutions.
Candidates should be art scholars with stature in the field and experience in editing book and/or exhibition reviews; institutional affiliation is not required. Candidates should be published authors of at least one book.
The reviews editor is responsible for commissioning all book and exhibition reviews in The Art Bulletin. He or she selects books and exhibitions for review, commissions reviewers, and determines the appropriate length and character of reviews. The reviews editor also works with authors and CAA’s editorial director in the development and preparation of review manuscripts for publication. He or she is expected to keep abreast of newly published and important books and recent exhibitions in the fields of art history, criticism, theory, visual studies, and museum publishing. This is a three-year term, which includes membership on the Art Bulletin Editorial Board.
The reviews editor attends the three annual meetings of the Art Bulletin Editorial Board held three times a year: in the spring and fall plus one at the CAA Annual Conference in February. The fall and spring meetings are currently held by teleconference. Members are expected to pay travel and lodging expenses to attend the conference in February. Members of all editorial boards volunteer their services to CAA without compensation. The reviews editor submits an annual report to CAA’s Board of Directors.
Candidates must be current CAA members in good standing and should not be simultaneously serving on the editorial board of a competitive journal or on another CAA editorial board or committee. The Art Bulletin also encourages nominations from two-person editorial teams representing divergent and/or complementary fields and approaches. CAA seeks applications from colleagues who will contribute to the diversity of perspectives on the Art Bulletin Editorial Board and who will engage actively with conversations about the discipline’s engagements with differences of culture, religion, nationality, race, gender, sexuality, and access. Nominators should ascertain their nominee’s willingness to serve before submitting a name; self-nominations are also welcome. Please email a letter describing your or your nominee’s interest in and qualifications for appointment, a CV, and your contact information to Joan Strasbaugh, Managing Editor, at JStrasbaugh@collegeart.org.
Deadline: April 15, 2020
Finalists will be interviewed on the afternoon of Friday, May 1, in New York.
