Jane K. Brown has informed us that after completing five years as the editor of our book series, New Studies in the Age of Goethe, she plans stepping down at the end of 2015. We plan announcing the Board’s choice of a new editor at the GSA in October. I am therefore asking any member who wants to be considered for this important position to send me a letter of interest, along with a current CV, which I will submit to the Society’s Board of Directors.
The series editor solicits manuscripts, does preliminary screening of proposals, selects manuscripts for consideration (in consultation with his/her own advisory committee as he/she prefers), chooses and solicits outside reviewers, selects manuscripts for publication, works in consultation with the acquisitions editor at Bucknell University Press, and offers editorial advice to authors as appropriate. This position is a wonderful way to see what people are up to. Anyone who wants more detail about the activity should contact Jane at email@example.com.
Please have your letters to me by April 1, 2015.
