Jobs for Medievalists

Fifteenth-Century Studies, a refereed interdisciplinary medieval studies journal which publishes in English, French, German, and Spanish, seeks a senior editor who will then assemble an editorial team. The journal currently publishes yearly, sponsors five sessions at the Medieval Congress held annually at Kalamazoo, and co-sponsors European conferences held at certain intervals. At present, the journal has an Editorial Advisory Board and a Book Review Editor. FCS was founded in 1977 by Edelgard Dubruck and has been published in 38 volumes (of approximately 250 pages each) to date. The book is brought out by Camden House, an imprint of Boydell & Brewer. Since 2007, FCS has been published digitally through LION (ProQuest) as well as in hard-cover format and thus has acquired a much wider readership. Besides being published in the USA, Germany, France, and Spain, academic institutions in the following countries subscribe: Korea, Japan, South Africa, Poland, Hungary, Switzerland, Austria, Mexico, China, Ireland, Taiwan, Singapore, Turkey, Israel, India, Portugal, Kuwait, Denmark, and the Czech Republic. This is an unpaid position with enormous potential for developing the journal into the future. The interested scholar should have a background in French, German, or Spanish; experience publishing a yearly volume; and the ability to elicit institutional support. Camden House, the publisher, incurs the expense of typesetting, yet funds amassed by the journal are minimal, having been generated through readers’ subscribership to the Fifteenth Century Society, a professional organization associated with the journal and its associated activities; namely, the symposia held yearly in Kalamazoo.
