The Italian American Review is looking for a book review editor and an exhibition review editor.

The Italian American Review (IAR), a bi-annual, peer-reviewed journal of Queens College's John D. Calandra Italian American Institute, publishes scholarly articles about the history and culture of Italian Americans, as well as other aspects of the Italian diaspora. The journal embraces a wide range of professional concerns and theoretical orientations in the social sciences and in cultural studies. For more information, see the Publications page on the Calandra Institute's website (qcpages.qc.cuny.edu/calandra/<http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=001XcfS_AdA3gkDQQVtIJOwzkmONIRn8gFUMSuzGO07K1oYDHXP74LYnUfDozLadK-sSpFYym9TX298ZzV3ddcY68WpB75Zd6b3rmAj8MSlZ7aEzb1tBVHsb0jH-VNWVeSll_ffp1gtwOS17UrRHH4d_A5bcwOQihKkcO_RhRkTeo8desZ2vVYEUnN0vxTCFKSL&c=&ch=>).

The book review editor researches potential books for assessment, engages potential reviewers, arranges the reviews, and does initial edits, while serving as the main point of contact between reviewers and the IAR editorial staff. This editor should be familiar with current issues concerning Italian American studies and should be a published book author.

IAR's exhibition review editor researches potential exhibitions for assessment, engages potential reviewers, arranges the reviews, and does initial edits, while serving as the main point of contact between reviewers and the IAR editorial staff. This editor should be familiar with current issues concerning Italian American studies and have experience with social-sciences or humanities exhibitions.

Both positions require editorial, organizational, and communications abilities. Both are nonpaying volunteer roles, in keeping with the practice of academic journal publishing. The IAR is looking for a three-year commitment.

If you are interested in taking on the duties of one of these editorial positions, please send your CV to the editor, Joseph Sciorra, at joseph.sciorra@qc.cuny.edu.
