After many years of service, Dean Grodzins is stepping down as editor of the Journal of Unitarian Universalist History. Do you know someone who would make a good replacement? The editor receives a stipend and travel expenses to important meetings. Responsibilities include soliciting new articles on Unitarian, Universalist, and Unitarian-Universalist history; editing articles and working with proofreaders, reviewers, etc; participation in Unitarian Universalist Historical Society meetings; some grantwriting work; and management of the volunteer editorial board.
Here is how the application is described:
“Those who wish to be considered for this position should submit a curriculum vita or resume as well as an extended letter of application describing the skills and vision you would bring to the editorial task. Be sure to address your editorial experience and philosophy, your historical training and expertise, and your vision for how to advance the study of Unitarian Universalist history. Discuss as well your ideas for how you might integrate, in a single publication, high level historical scholarship with accessible presentations of Unitarian Universalist heritage, and how you might help broaden the community of those interested in and doing scholarly work on UU history. If you have computer, grantwriting, and administrative experience or skills, please let us know. Please keep in mind that no one person can be a consummate expert in every area; we are most interested in knowing the particular strengths you would bring to the editorial task.”
