New Editor Required for the Journal of Museum Ethnography

This is a mainly voluntary post with a small remuneration  - £1000 per issue per year. Each year the Editor chooses and gathers papers from the previous annual conference, and with the help of the conference host prepares these for publication, together with research papers, exhibition, book and web reviews. 

Thanks to the hard work of previous editors JME now has a strong profile. If you are interested in taking on the role of editor please apply by sending via email a CV and a covering letter simultaneously to the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. of MEG by Friday 28th October 2016. The covering letter should give details of your editing and publishing experience to date and tell us why you wish to take on this rewarding challange. We hope to appoint the new editor by the 8th December 2016 and the current editor, Sarah Bryne, will be available for a handover period, to assist with JME 30.
