MAA News – Speculum Editor Position Information Sessions

We are very pleased to invite anyone interested in submitting a proposal to serve as the next Editor of Speculum to sign up for a private 30-minute informational meeting with President Sara Lipton, Executive Director Lisa Fagin Davis, and other members of the Search Committee. We will provide some background on the history of the Editor position and the complex series of agreements and MOUs governing our relationship with the Catholic University of America (the home of our current editor Katherine Jansen) and our publisher (the University of Chicago Press), as well as lay out the financial parameters of the position and explain the current compensatory model for the Editor and Speculum staff. We would like to note that there is some flexibility in how MAA funds designated for the support of Speculum may be allocated, though the total amount of those funds is fixed according to the MAA budget.

Informational meetings may be scheduled for Tuesday, 14 May between 3 and 5 PM; or for Wednesday, 15 May between 10:30 AM and 12:30 PM (all times US Eastern).

We invite all who are seriously considering submitting a proposal to sign up for a timeslot using the link below (names will not be visible to others):

We will send the Zoom link for participants in the coming weeks.

We look forward to meeting with all prospective applicants soon. If you are unable to schedule a meeting for either 14 or 15 May, please email the Search Committee <> and we will work with you to schedule another time to meet.

Sara Lipton, President and Search Committee Chair
