Call for Applications: EuropeNow Editorial Committee 


EuropeNow, the flagship publication of the Council for European Studies (CES), invites applications from highly motivated scholars to join the Editorial Committee. EuropeNow is a bimonthly interdisciplinary journal that features research, commentary, interviews, and book reviews on Europe, alongside literary nonfiction, fiction, poetry, translation, and visual art from or concerning Europe.

The Editorial Committee is responsible for curating and delivering content for the journal. It is comprised of promising young scholars or established scholars in any field in the humanities and social sciences. Committee members work with the Committee Chair and Editor to deliver content for any section of the journal: academic book review, Editor’s Pick, research, commentaries, interviews, conference dispatches, teaching & learning material, or roundtables on topics of relevance to the study of Europe.

The type of individuals CES seeks must be self-motivated, dynamic, organized, excited about research in and outside their respective fields (ideally with an interdisciplinary approach), and able to engage with other scholars constructively and supportively.

Each committee member serves a 1-year term, with the possibility for renewal. Please note that CES expects at least 8-10 curated content pieces per year, or one content piece every month and a half approximately, per committee member. This is a service position, and committee work is done remotely. Selection will be made as to ensure a suitable balance of expertise within the Committee. No prior editing experience is necessary, and we encourage junior scholars who would like to get involved in editing or the publication process at large to apply.


Applications are considered on a rolling basis. Apply anytime by emailing the Editor about your interest, motivations, and qualifications.
