Call for Application and Nominations for Editor of TAPA (2022-2025)

Call for Application and Nominations for Editor of TAPA (2022-2025)

The current TAPA Editor Andromache Karanika will end her term of service with volume 151 (2021). Therefore, we are now opening a search for the next TAPA Editor, to cover volumes 152-155 (2022-2025), and inviting applications and nominations for the position.

TAPA is the only journal published by the Society for Classical Studies. Though founded as a philological journal, TAPA is now expected to reflect a broad spectrum of topics, sub-fields, and theoretical and methodological approaches within Greek and Roman Studies.

Qualifications:

The Editor must be a member in good standing of the SCS.

Candidates should have some experience and understanding of the journal publication process, but prior journal editing experience is not necessary.

Responsibilities:

The Editor of TAPA has responsibility for editorial content, and must acknowledge submissions, select referees, and inform authors whether submissions have been accepted. In addition, the Editor must work closely with the Journals Division of Johns Hopkins University Press, which typesets, produces, and distributes each issue.

Authors have a right to expect that their submissions will be evaluated fairly and promptly, but securing appropriate referees is not always an easy task. To help with this, the editor has an Editorial Board of scholars in different fields. The new Editor will be responsible for choosing new members of this Board as the current ones rotate off. The Editor contacts most potential referees and receives their reports by email. Referees do not always agree, and the Editor must evaluate their evaluations. Most articles are significantly revised before final acceptance, and the Editor frequently advises authors on matters of both substance and style.

The Editor is an ex officio member of the SCS Committee on Publications and Research and prepares an annual report for the Committee as well as consulting as needed with the Executive Director and the Vice President for Publications and Research.

For many years, the Editor has hosted a meeting or reception for editors of classical journals at the SCS Annual Meeting. This practice will need to be adapted or revived as circumstances change.

Terms:

The Editor is appointed for four years, with the possibility of extension for a maximum of two additional years. The new Editor’s term officially begins in January 2022, but as Editor Designate the new editor will assume responsibility to receive and process submissions during the first half of 2021, as soon as the second issue of 2021 has enough accepted work to meet the usual page limit. The first press deadline for the Editor Designate will be in early January 2022, for submission of prepared copy for the Spring 2022 issue. Currently, the press deadline for initial submission of prepared copy for Fall issues is around June 18. The Editor will be responsible for two issues per year to be published in 2022, 2024, and 2025. In 2023, the Editor will be responsible for one regular issue and will provide administrative support to guest editors Sasha-Mae Eccleston and Patrice Rankine for the themed issue “Race and Racism: Beyond the Spectacular”.

The Editor receives an honorarium of $5,000 annually (paid in two installments as each issue is published), and the Society pays for the Editor’s travel and lodging for the annual meetings during the term of office. The Society also provides some financial support for the establishment of the new editorial office, e.g., for computer equipment and office supplies and would be able to provide support for an editorial assistant, usually a graduate student, if necessary.

How to apply:

Candidates should submit a current CV and a statement detailing relevant experience to the chair of the search committee, Donald Mastronarde (djmastronarde@berkeley.edu) no later than October 30, 2020. The committee is also eager to receive (before October 1, if possible) nominations of suitable candidates to be invited to apply. The search committee consists of Sheila Murnaghan, Shelley Haley, Donald Mastronarde, Francis Dunn, Jackie Murray, and Helen Cullyer.

All applicants will receive consideration without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, gender identity, sexual orientation, pregnancy and pregnancy-related conditions, or any other characteristic protected by law. SCS particularly welcomes applicants who identify as BIPOC.

Final Reminder: Revised 9/23/21 with updated submission deadline of Friday, February 18, 2022.

As previously announced, Patrice Rankine and Sasha-Mae Eccleston will serve as guest editors of a future issue of TAPA with the theme of race, racism, and Classics (issue 153:1, to appear April 2023). Their detailed call for papers, along with submission instructions, follows.

Covid-19 and the global Movement 4 Black Lives have highlighted the extent to which racism is a public health emergency whose reach extends across the Black Atlantic and far beyond. In light of these deeply imbricated developments, this volume becomes even more timely.

Race and Racism: Beyond the Spectacular

"…the “cultural logic” of lynching enables it to emerge and persist throughout the modern era because its violence “fit” within the broader, national cultural developments. This synchronicity captures why I refer to lynching as “spectacular”: the violence made certain cultural developments and tensions visible for Americans to confront."

Please join us on Monday, February 14, 2022, at 4:00-5:30pm EST, for a career webinar for PhDs and graduate students on K-12 teaching (registration required).

ACLS will offer a virtual presentation for PhDs and graduate students to learn about teaching roles in K-12 schools during a Q&A with people representing K-12 independent and public schools.

We hope this will prepare anyone interested in applying to K-12 independent and public schools for Fall 2022 teaching roles, which are advertised primarily in winter. Teaching at public schools is a less immediate option because of certification and degree requirements which vary by state, so most of our panelists teach in independent schools, which don’t require certification.

In 2022 the Society for Classical Studies (SCS) will again award the David D. and Rosemary H. Coffin Fellowship for study and travel in classical lands.

The Fellowship is intended to recognize secondary-school teachers of Greek or Latin who are as dedicated to their students as the Coffins themselves by giving them the opportunity to enrich their teaching and their lives through direct acquaintance with the classical world.  It will support study in classical lands (not limited to Greece and Italy); the recipient may use it to attend an educational program in (e.g. American Academy, American School) or to undertake an individual plan of study or research. It may be used either for summer study or during a sabbatical leave, and it may be used to supplement other awards or prizes.

You can read more about this fellowship here: Coffin Fellowship Flyer or for full details and instructions please visit the David D. and Rosemary H. Coffin Fellowship page. Materials must be received no later than 5:00 p.m. (Eastern Time) on Thursday, February 17, 2022.

Digital Ancient Rome

An NEH Summer Seminar for K-12 educators

Digital Ancient Rome is an NEH Summer Seminar for K-12 educators that will give teachers an opportunity to learn about important examples of Roman art, architecture, and archaeology through a broad range of digital resources. One of the most exciting things for students who study ancient Rome is that so many physical aspects of its civilization survive to this day. It is not just an ancient history that we know through texts. The surviving material remains—small artifacts, sculpture, paintings, mosaics, public monuments, neighborhoods, and whole cities—tell a variety of stories about the ancient world, and they bring history to life in a way that students find compelling.  

Dates: July 18-29, 2022

Place: Gustavus Adolphus College, St. Peter, Minnesota
