Graduate Fellowship in History and Scholarly Publishing, Canadian Journal of History/Annales canadiennes d'histoire
The Canadian Journal of History/Annales canadiennes d’histoire (CJH/ACH) announces a new graduate fellowship for a student in history who has an interest in scholarly publishing. A leading peer-reviewed journal of general history with an international audience, the CJH/ACH was founded in 1966 by the History Department at the University of Saskatchewan and maintains its Editorial Office there. It publishes articles, reviews, commentary, and research notes in both English and French, and appears three times a year.
Candidates for the fellowship must apply successfully for Fall 2014 admittance into either the MA or PhD program in History at the University of Saskatchewan. Prospective students should identify a potential faculty supervisor for their research as part of their application. The successful candidate will work ten (10) hours per week for the journal, during which time they would not be expected to work as a Teaching Assistant. The fellow will assist with the following functions: identifying appropriate reviewers for books received; corresponding with reviewers; ordering and processing books for review; copy-editing, formatting, and proofreading; record-keeping and data entry; website maintenance; advertising sales; marketing; and translation (as skills permit). The fellowship pays a stipend of approximately $16,500 and is renewable (subject to budgetary approval).
APPLICATIONS: No special form is required. However, candidates for the fellowship must include with their regular application for admission a one-page letter addressed to the journal’s Editor, Dr. Mark Meyers, in which they (1) explain why they are interested in the CJH/ACH Graduate Fellowship; (2) identify a potential faculty supervisor for their research; (3) summarize, if applicable, their experience in scholarly and/or other forms of publishing; and (4) indicate their language skills in both English and French (especially reading comprehension and writing), noting any language courses or training they have had. Candidates may be interviewed in person or by telephone or Skype.
Although all candidates with an interest in history and scholarly publishing are encouraged to apply, preference will be given to applicants with prior experience in scholarly publishing, as well as to those with language skills in both English and French.
