Two Editors: RHS Camden Series
Opens 14 Oct 2021 10:00 AM (BST)
Deadline 26 Nov 2021 11:59 PM (GMT)
Description

The Royal Historical Society seeks to appoint two academic Editors to lead on the scholarly content and creative development of its prestigious Camden Series of primary source volumes, published by Cambridge University Press.

The Camden Series has to date been edited by members of the Society’s Council. The Society now seeks two external appointments to take on the work of editing and developing the Series—in line with its recent creation of external editorial roles for the RHS journal, Transactions of the Royal Historical Society.

For the Camden Series, we are looking for two editors with complementary research expertise in British history, broadly defined—one in medieval/early modern, the other modern history. Applicants must also be Fellows of the Royal Historical Society. We anticipate that the two new appointments will take effect from 31 January 2022. Appointments will be for 2 years in the first instance (renewable for a further 2 years), subject to the successful completion of a probationary period.

If you wish to discuss the Camden Editor posts in advance of an application, please contact Professor Andrew Spicer, early modern (aspicer@brookes.ac.uk) or Professor Richard Toye, modern (r.toye@exeter.ac.uk).

For any questions about the application system, please contact: administration@royalhistsoc.org
