Currently in its twelfth year, Journal of Historians of Netherlandish Art is well-established as a premier peer-reviewed, online-only publication in the history of art. The Editor-in-Chief supervises the publication of JHNA at all stages, from soliciting and editing submissions to managing post-publication duties. This includes coordinating the management of submissions with the associate editors. The Editor actively solicits articles and works closely with the Copyeditor and the Managing Editor, who provides technical expertise. The Editor submits an annual report to the HNA Board, including expenditures and an assessment of submissions and rejections. The Editor is selected by the HNA Board and serves a four-year renewable term. The work load for the Editor averages about eight to ten hours per week, with considerably more work required at critical stages in the publication of each issue.
Ideal candidates for the position of Editor-in-Chief should:
- be established as a specialist in a field of Netherlandish, German, and Franco-Flemish art and architecture (c.1350–1750)
- be skilled at soliciting and managing submissions
- have experience with content assessment and line editing of manuscripts
- be capable of managing the details of a complex work flow
- be willing to engage with long-term publication planning
- have a strong grasp of digital art history
The selected candidate will be encouraged to work closely with the current Editor-in-Chief throughout the remainder of 2020 and a significant portion of 2021.
Interested candidates should send a letter of interest summarizing their qualifications and a current CV to HNA President Paul Crenshaw (firstname.lastname@example.org) by September 15, 2020.
