Search for Editor of Classical World

After twenty years as Editor of Classical World, Dr. Matthew Santirocco has indicated his
intention of stepping down in October, 2013. The Classical Association of the Atlantic States is now searching for a new Editor, who will assume responsibility in the summer of 2013, and whose first issue will be 107.1 (Sept.-Nov. 2013).
The Editor, who must be a member in good standing of the Association, is appointed
for a term of five years, renewable. S/he has responsibility for the editorial content of the
journal. Working with an editorial board of several associate and assistant editors, the Editor acknowledges and keeps track of submissions, selects referees, informs authors about the status of their articles, and advises them on revisions. In addition, the Editor works closely with the journals division of the Johns Hopkins University Press, which typesets, produces, and distributes each issue.
The Editor is an ex officio member of the CAAS Board of Directors, prepares semi-annual
reports for the Board, and attends its meetings. The Editor receives an honorarium of $10,000 annually, and the Association pays for the editor’s travel and lodging to attend Board meetings during the term of office. As in the past, short-listed candidates will be asked to determine what support their home institutions would be willing to provide to enable them to undertake this work.
Candidates should send a CV and a letter explaining their interest to the Chair of the CAAS
Nominations Committee, Dr. Shelley Haley (, not later than January 31, 2013. The Committee also welcomes nominations of suitable candidates.
