The Bulletin for Spanish and Portuguese Historical Studies is the official peer-reviewed journal of the Association for Spanish and Portuguese Historical Studies.

***

Call for General Editor:  The Bulletin for Spanish and Portuguese Historical Studies welcomes applications for a General Editor to begin in the Winter or Spring of 2022. The BSPHS  is a peer-reviewed online journal. The journal embraces a cross-disciplinary approach, accepting works of historical content and/or historical relevance belonging to disciplines outside the field of History such as Literary Studies, Historical Sociology, Historical Anthropology, and Art History, among others. The main contents of the BSPHS are scholarly individual or co-authored articles, topical forum conversations, and book reviews, and are published in English, Spanish, and Portuguese. To experiment with the possibilities of digital academic publishing, we are also partnering with the Historias podcast (https://historiaspodcast.org) to publish audio interviews with authors featured in the journal, and piloting a resource sharing initiative through Zotero (https://www.zotero.org/bsphs) where authors can publish curated collections of print and web resources.

Volume 46, Issue 1 of the journal will appear in December 2021, and a special issue on New Directions in Iberian History (Vol. 46, Issue 2) is scheduled for Summer 2022. The outgoing General Editor, Andrea Davis, will see these projects to completion and be available to the incoming Editor as necessary.

The position is a two year, renewal appointment. The Editor works with an active editorial board, but will be responsible for the technicalities associated with online publishing, managing submissions, and running board meetings, which currently take place virtually. The General Editor must be a current member of the Association for Spanish and Portuguese Historical Studies (https://asphs.net/). Ideally, an incoming editor will have support from their home institution such as a designated workspace, course release, or student assistance.

Interested applicants should submit a letter of interest outlining the candidate’s editorial experience and vision to Miriam Shadis (shadis@ohio.edu), Karoline Cook (karoline.cook@rhul.ac.uk), Alejandra Osorio (aosorio@wellesley.edu), and Amanda Scott (als7146@psu.edu). Please include a CV addressing publication, editorial, and administrative experience if any. Experience with electronic publication is a particular desideratum. Please submit applications by November 1, 2021 for full consideration. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
