The Society for Psychological Anthropology seeks a new Editor or Editorial team for Culture, Mind, and Society, the society’s book series with Palgrave Macmillan. The new editor(s) would begin work in Fall 2013 and will be appointed for a three-year (renewable) term. The series publishes innovative research in culture and psychology that illuminates the workings of the human mind within social, cultural, and political contexts. As scholars from many fields seek to bridge gaps between inner and outer domains of experience (and even to problematize that distinction itself) this interdisciplinary terrain is more active than ever.
We seek an experienced scholar or scholars working in psychological anthropology to take on the leadership of the series. Applicants should submit a CV and letter of interest indicating their vision for the series and editorial experience as soon as possible to Claudia Strauss, SPA President (firstname.lastname@example.org). Letters nominating promising candidates are welcome as well. Finalists will be invited to respond to a series of directed questions on these topics. Final selection will follow an interview at the upcoming SPA/ACYIG meeting (April 4-7) or over the phone. Applicants are welcome to contact the current editor, Rebecca Lester (email@example.com) to discuss the current editorial processes.
