Call for Editors: H-Environment Roundtables

Scroll this

Melanie Kiechle, Kara Schlichting and Keith Mako Woodhouse have worked together for the last four years to generate and edit roundtables responding to new and exciting work in environmental history. Kara will continue as a co-editor for one more year, but Melanie and Keith are stepping down. We are looking for two new editors and hope members of this list will consider this opportunity. 

This is an unpaid, volunteer position. It also is a great way to meet and work with a variety of scholars working on environmental subjects, and to help shape conversations about emerging scholarship. The goal of the roundtables is to foster conversation between authors and reviewers. The three editors each pick 3-4 books to feature each year. They assemble a group of 3-4 commenters for each book, edit the comments and the author responses, and write introductions for each roundtable. The editors collaborate frequently. 

Term: 3-5 years 

Work load: Emailing and networking with a diverse set of colleagues in the field to maintain the publishing calendar for each roundtable. Roundtable editing, formatting, and publishing on H-Environment. Coordinating with peer editors to select books, striving to improve geographic and demographic representation. 

New editors are welcome to “shadow” existing in-progress roundtables to learn the ropes during summer 2022, and will start their own roundtables in fall 2022. For more information, contact any of the current editors (we’re all friendly!)
