Open call for expressions of interest: Acadeafic editorial board

Acadeafic is a website with academic vlogs and blogs about the latest research in sign language and Deaf Studies, established in May 2019. The managing editors are currently looking to expand the editorial board with academics from various backgrounds that are not yet covered by our own expertise. We specifically welcome applications from sign linguistics scholars, scholars from various national and ethnic backgrounds, deaf scholars with a disability, and scholars at various stages of their academic careers, post-PhD dissertation.

Editorial board members will be responsible for actively recruiting new submissions and for reviewing of submissions in consultation with the managing editors. As such, editors should be able to offer substantive editorial comment on works in both English and International Sign and a national signed language.

What we offer: work as part of a nice international team of scholars, participation in the popular dissemination of research on Deaf Studies and sign languages, and editing experience (for early career scholars).

Please apply by September 30th in both English and International Sign by e-mailing to one of the managing editors (Maartje, Annelies, Joe or Erin).

Any questions: get in touch with us!
