Expressions of interest are called for the position of the editor role of The Australian Association for Literary Translation’s peer-reviewed online journal, The AALITRA Review.
The AALITRA Review publishes a variety of high-quality material concerned with literary translation, and translations of literary texts with a critical introduction and commentary by the translator. It hopes to foster a community of literary translators and to be a forum for lively debate concerning
issues related to the translation of literary texts.
Two small issues per year are published, with one large special issue potentially replacing the former in alternating years. The Review’s new editor(s) will work with the journal’s editorial team, which currently includes two co-editors and editorial assistants, as needed. The new editor(s) will be appointed in mid-2023 to provide sufficient time for the current co-editors to provide a handover to the incoming editor(s), who will fully take on the role in 2024. The position is unpaid, and the expected workload for the role is roughly 2-3 hours per week on average.
Expressions of Interest are open until the close of business on Friday 21 April. Those with a PhD in Translation Studies (or near completion) are highly encouraged to apply. Those interested should send a CV and short covering statement, with information on any editorial and publishing experience to the co-editors Lola Sundin (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Cristina Savin (email@example.com). Successful applicants will be invited for a short interview before the final selection is made.
