ARE YOU INTERESTED IN GAINING EDITORIAL EXPERIENCE IN AN ACADEMIC JOURNAL?
DO YOU WANT TO MAKE USE OF YOUR TIME ON SOCIAL MEDIA?
apply to join the Editorial Board of Studies in Ethnicity and Nationalism (SEN) as Social Media Editor.
Studies in Ethnicity and Nationalism (SEN) is a fully refereed journal publishing three issues per volume on ethnicity, race and nationalism. The sources and nature of ethnic identity, minority rights, migration and identity politics remain central and recurring themes of the modern world. The journal approaches the complexity of these questions from a contemporary perspective. The journal’s sole purpose is to showcase exceptional articles from up-and-coming scholars across the world, as well as concerned professionals and practitioners in government, law, NGOs and media, making it one of the first journals to provide an interdisciplinary forum for established and younger scholars alike. The journal is strictly non-partisan and does not subscribe to any particular viewpoints or perspective. All articles are fully peer-reviewed by scholars who are specialists in their respective fields.
The Social Media Editor is expected to help promote SEN on social media networks, including Facebook and Twitter. Since this is an unpaid volunteer position, the successful candidate is expected to work at their own time convenience while being in regular contact with the Editors-in-Chief of the journal. The expected workload is between 2-5 hours per week. The academic and media experience gained out of this position has the potential to boost your resume, especially if you are interested in pursuing a career in academia and/or the media. The ideal candidate is a student in the social sciences either at the Masters or PhD level (though highly qualified and ambitious Bachelor students will not be excluded) and interested in issues related to ethnicity, the politics of conflict, identity and nationalism. Area specialization is open.
