Resources for medieval musicology and liturgy
Cambridge University Press is inviting expressions of interest for the position of Co-Editor of Plainsong and Medieval Music
Plainsong & Medieval Music is published twice a year in association with the Plainsong and Medieval Music Society and Cantus Planus, a study group of the International Musicological Society. The journal covers the entire spectrum of medieval music: Eastern and Western chant, secular lyric, music theory, palaeography, performance practice, and medieval polyphony, both sacred and secular, as well as the history of musical institutions. The chronological scope of the journal extends from late antiquity to the early Renaissance and to the present day in the case of chant.
Dr Helen Deeming will be stepping down as Co-Editor of Plainsong and Medieval Music in Autumn 2010. In order to ensure a smooth transition, we are now inviting applications from those interested in taking on this position for an initial term of four years. The new Co-Editor will? shadow? Dr Deeming from August 2010, and will work alongside Professor James Borders (University of Michigan).
Anyone wishing to express interest in this position is invited to send a brief CV and a short statement outlining the qualities they can bring to the post to the Chair of the Search Committee and to Cambridge University Press at the email addresses below.
A job specification and outline of the annual editorial timetable are available on request from Sally Hoffmann (email@example.com). Financial support in the form of an annual editorial stipend will be available from Cambridge University Press. Enquiries about this, or any other contractual issues, should also be made to Sally Hoffmann.
Expressions of interest should be submitted by 15 February 2010. It is anticipated that Cambridge University Press will make an appointment by the end of April 2010. In order to maintain geographical balance in the journal?s editorship, we would prefer to appoint a candidate based in the UK or in Europe.
