ACME: Call for Editors

ACME: An International E-Journal for Critical Geographies
Call For Editors
CLOSING DATE: April 1, 2016

ACME: An International E-Journal for Critical Geographies would like to invite applications from anyone interested in becoming an Editor for the journal. We are seeking TWO new Spanish-speaking editors, one of whom can also handle submissions in one of the other key languages of the journal (English, French, German, Italian). The Collective is especially encouraging applications from workers in positions of precarity and/or the Global South, as well as those who are from marginalized backgrounds and/or are first generation scholars (bearing in mind that all who apply will be considered). A commitment to mutuality, collective work, conviviality, and revolutionary punctuality is highly desirable.

ACME is an international journal for critical analyses of the social, the spatial, and the political. Our underlying purpose is to provide free access to critical and radical scholarship. We set no subscription fee, we do not publish for profit, we refuse to participate in neoliberal systems of audit regarding spurious claims to impact factor and journal ranking, we offer authors Creative Commons licenses (i.e. free use) of all their work, and no ACME Editors receive any compensation for their labour. The journal’s purpose is to provide a forum for the publication of critical work about space and place — including anarchist, anti-racist, environmentalist, decolonial, feminist, Marxist, non-representational, postcolonial, poststructuralist, queer, situationist, socialist, and anti-systemic perspectives. Analyses that are critical are understood to be part of the praxis of social and political change aimed at challenging, dismantling, and transforming prevalent relations, systems, and structures of exploitation, oppression, imperialism, national aggression, environmental destruction, and neoliberalism.

The role of Editor will involve shaping the direction of the journal through the following: (all of which will be reciprocated by each member of the ACME Editorial Collective)
Agreeing to engage in the practice of mutual support, congeniality, and collective work;
Communicating with editors, authors, and referees in a timely and constructive manner;
Regularly liaising with the Collective in a cooperative and non-hierarchical fashion;
Agreeing to participate in frequent processes of consensus based decision making;
Sharing thoughts on the overall direction, philosophy, and practices of the journal;
Performing normal editorial duties associated with issuing decisions on manuscripts and submissions;

To be considered for a post, please provide the following (in a combined microsoft word document):
Expression of Interest (maximum of 400 words)
CV

The Expression of Interest should address the following points:
Why you would like to join the ACME Editorial Collective;
What you feel your experience/areas of interest would contribute to the post;
What your general perspectives on “knowledge production” are;
Your vision of what directions you would like to see the journal take in the future;

CLOSING DATE: April 1, 2016
Please send your application as an attachment to ACME’s current Managing Editor/Bell Hop, Levi Gahman, at: levi.gahman@uwi.sta.edu
