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. Publications in this journal are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 License. Contemporaneity is published by the University Library System, University of Pittsburgh as part of its D-Scribe Digital Publishing Program and is cosponsored by the University of Pittsburgh Press.

The journal seeks applications for copy-editor of its sixth edition, “Art and Identification Across Borders,” which consists of three scholarly articles, a curatorial statement, an artist interview, three artistic submissions, two book reviews, four exhibition reviews, and an editorial statement, all totaling ~ 43,000 words. Copy editing responsibilities include technical editing, style editing according to the Chicago Manual of Style notes and bibliography system, and proofreading final PDFs formatted by the editorial board. Copy editors will be compensated a flat fee of $2,000. (Estimating about 1,000 words per hour, this is $46.51/hour.)

To qualify as an independent contract copy editor, applicants must have fluent English proficiency, ability to work remotely, and experience in academic copy editing. The ideal applicant for this position would have had exposure to scholarly writing in the fields of art history and/or visual culture. The candidates who have been most successful in the contract copy editor role are autonomous, have strong technical writing skills, and seek to make a positive impact on their field of expertise.
To apply, please send a cover letter and resume to the editor-in-chief, Rae Di Cicco, at rgd9@pitt.edu by September 20, 2017.

Copyeditor

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.
