The online peer-refereed journal CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture founded by Steven Totosy at http://www.arts.ualberta.ca/clcwebjournal is to be published with 2.3 (2000) by Purdue University Press at http://clcwqebjournal.lib.purdue.edu.
In connection with the relocation of the journal from the University of Alberta to Purdue -- an indication of a certain increase in the journal's process of legitimization (and reputation) in scholarship -- I am now am looking for assistant collaborators. Specifically, I am interested in graduate students of comparative literature and cultural studies who would be Editorial Assistants with CLCWeb. The work would mean bibliographical work (e.g., the updating of and additions to the comparative literature bibliographies in the library of clcweb), web editing, and other/similar aspects of the journal's operation.
There is no funding for this and thus no financial remuneration (CLCWeb is a free-access journal!). However, graduate students thus associated with CLCWeb are indicated on the masthead of the journal as editorial assistants: this may be of interest to graduate students in comparative literature and culture who recognize the potential, the importance, and the impact of new media scholarship in the humanities. Also, I encourage those interested to approach the department they are doing work in and explore the possibility to receive graduate student assistantship for the editorial assistantship with CLCWeb. I am aware that this would be new and unheard of to most chairs and graduate advisors but perhaps some would recognize its value in the graduate training and thus for the CV of the graduate student. In addition, editorial assistants with CLCWeb are encouraged to correspond and develop contacts with scholars who submit papers to CLCWeb and this has its obvious value. Interested student colleagues please send note to the editor of CLCWeb, Steven Totosy at .
