The Geek Anthropologist is seeking qualified individuals to join our Editorial Board. As an Editor at TGA, responsibilities include: recruiting new contributors and content for the blog and assisting with the writing and editorial process for contributors, as well as writing your own pieces for TGA if you’re feeling inspired. You will also communicate regularly with other members of the Editorial Board and represent TGA at conferences, cons and ethnographic workshops.
We’re looking for Editors with some background and training in Anthropology, as well as experience in editing. That being said, you don’t necessarily have to have a PhD in Anthropology–it’s more important that you have a working knowledge of anthropological methods and theories, and an understanding of the major issues and conversations happening in anthropology today. Obviously, we’re also looking for self-identified geeks, those who are interested in blending a love of geek culture and anthropological insight, while challenging us to consider potentially new dimensions of geek anthropology. We have ongoing series in Speculative Anthropologies, Book Reviews, and Anthropologies of Outer Space, but we encourage new editors to bring issues and editorial directions to the blog as well, hopefully with a working knowledge of WordPress.
If you are interested in joining the Editorial team, and contributing to the TGA community, please send a short CV, a brief writing sample (ideally a blog post or something that would be read by a more public audience, rather than a peer reviewed journal article for instance), and a brief description about your interest in becoming an Editor with TGA to firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you and to bringing on new members of the team!
