Dissertation Reviews

Field Editor in Southeast Asian Studies

Dissertation Reviews (www.dissertationreviews.org) is a web platform featuring friendly, non-critical overviews of recently defended Ph.D. dissertations. Each review provides a summary of the author's main arguments, the particular scholarly conversation in which s/he is engaging, and the main source bases for the research. By focusing on the window of time between dissertation defense and first book publication, their goal is to offer scholars a glimpse of the immediate present of each field. Such awareness, they feel, leads to more dynamic, informed, collegial, and innovative scholarly communities. They are looking for a dynamic, early- to mid-career scholar to join their team in the position of Field Editor for the popular series Southeast Asian Studies Dissertation Reviews.

Please email them at info@dissertationreviews.org with following items:
- Brief Statement addressing: the field/discipline/area you are applying to help develop and edit; how and why the scholars and scholarship in this field would, in your opinion, benefit from and contribute to the Dissertation Reviews community; and how your own background and credentials speak to the eligibility items listed above?
- CV (2 pp. or less)

Please note that all editorial positions at Dissertation Reviews are unpaid.
