The Goethe Society of North America is seeking a tenured faculty member to serve as the new editor for the Goethe Yearbook, as the current editor Daniel Purdy completes his term. A fully refereed journal published annually, the Goethe Yearbook serves as the leading North American venue for scholarship on the literary, intellectual, and cultural history of Germany in the long eighteenth century. The new editor will begin the transition process in the summer of 2012 and assume full responsibility in 2013 for a 3 to 5-year term. The GSNA encourages candidates to seek administrative and/or material support from their home institutions and will also discuss ways it can support the activities of the editor.
Please send a cv and letter of application describing relevant experience, interests and vision for the journal by December 20 to Karin Schutjer ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>). Applications for joint editorships are also welcome. Questions about the nature of the journal or the responsibilities of the editor can be directed to Daniel Purdy ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>).
We also strongly encourage members to nominate suitable candidates. Please send names to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> as soon as possible.
