Academic Art History Journal seeks Copy Editor
Contemporaneity: Historical Presence in Visual Culture aims to explore how the complexities of being in time find visual form. Crucial to this undertaking is accounting for how, from prehistory to the present, cultures around the world conceive of and construct their present and the concept of presentness visually. Through scholarly writings from a number of academic disciplines in the humanities, together with contributions from artists and filmmakers, Contemporaneity maps the diverse ways in which cultures use visual means to record, define, and interrogate their historical context and presence in time.
Contemporaneity is a scholarly, peer-reviewed, open-access, online, annual publication edited by a graduate editorial board in the Department of History of Art & Architecture at the University of Pittsburgh.

We are a tiny imprint. (Micro would be a more accurate word than tiny.) Our interest is chiefly in the humanities and medicine. One of our books was translated into eight languages, sold in the thousands, and has made a huge impact globally. The point being that a press need not be large to make a difference. We are looking for freelance copy editors at $35 an hour who can do the kind of quality editing one would get when publishing with a leading university press, such as Harvard, Yale, or Princeton. In the past we have employed freelancers from these university presses, with excellent results. Our publishing strategy is to court specific authors and match them with a specific copy editor for their project, again, at $35/hour. If this interests you, please shoot me an email.
