TWC Assistant Editor

Transformative Works and Cultures seeks 1 or 2 assistant editors as part of building a leadership pipeline for the journal and in the field more broadly.


Under the supervision of the editors, the assistant editors will assist with editorial review of new submissions, managing the peer review process, and communicating with authors. Estimated time commitment is approximately 1 hour per week.


  • Applicants should be senior PhD students (ABD) or early career scholars (fewer than 5 years post-PhD)
  • Applicants should have a record of peer-reviewed publications.
  • Applicants need not be native speakers of English but must be competent in academic prose in English.
  • Previous editorial experience is appreciated but not required.

As part of our goal to support the ongoing diversification of fan studies, scholars of color and non-Western scholars are particularly encouraged to apply.
