    Dear Colleagues,

    of roles (e.g., librarian, faculty, student, independent scholar, cultural
    heritage worker) and from all over the world to fill our openings for* ten
    (10) digital humanities practitioners or small teams* *of 2-3
    practitioners *to serve as topic editors from 2023-2026. *This is a paid
    role ($2500/year per topic area). *Additional details are available on our
    website (https://reviewsindh.pubpub.org/topic-editors-wanted).

    Informational webinars are coming up! The webinars will be recorded and

    Monday, January 23, 6pm Eastern
    (https://dartmouth.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJwlfuGtrzMuGtTj5Ob-748CeIRND2DPlOgM)

    Each topic editor/team will be responsible for curating reviews in their
    area. Areas: *African diaspora studies, global Indigenous studies, trans &
    gender studies, community-engaged DH, social justice pedagogy, endangered
    cultural heritage, Asian and Asian diaspora studies, Latinx studies, queer
    studies, andReviews in the Classroom* (issues developed as course
    assignments). As there may be overlap between areas, we will encourage
    collaboration across them.

    Topic editors/teams will be responsible for developing two issues per year
    (minimum 4 reviews/issue) and will build the project and reviewer pools for
    their topic by identifying projects and potential reviewers. Their work
    will be mentored and supported by journal editors, with communication with
    project directors and reviewers handled by our Managing Editors and
    production of issues handled by our Associate Editor. Multilingual issues
    are warmly welcome.

    Topic editors/teams will have access to a budget to pay reviewers and
    translators, where appropriate, and will receive virtual training by
    *Reviews* editors in our review model, workflow, and production processes.
    The position description will be documented in a memorandum of agreement
    between topic editors/teams and *Reviews in Digital Humanities. *

    Applicants should have knowledge about digital scholarship in the selected
    topic. They can apply for multiple topics if appropriate, though a separate
    application for each is requested. To ensure a variety of voices are part
    of the leadership of *Reviews in Digital Humanities*, individuals will not
    be selected for more than one role.

    *Applications are due February 1, 2023.* Please complete the application
    form (https://forms.gle/4ShGsQ1ovTEzrCTU7), which requires a brief
    statement of interest and vision for the topic (300 words max.) and a CV
    (or a single file with CVs for all proposed team members).

    Individuals or pre-constituted small teams are welcome to apply, though
    individuals may indicate whether they are interested in working alone or on
    a team assembled by us for the topic.

    Short-listed applicants will be invited for a brief interview to discuss
    their interest and ask questions in mid-February. Decisions will be
    announced by March 1, 2023.

    Please direct all inquiries to founding editors-in-chief Roopika Risam (
    roopika.risam@dartmouth.edu) and Jennifer Guiliano (guiliano@iupui.edu)
    with “Reviews Editor” in the subject line.

    Sincerely,
