NOTCHES is seeking two graduate student Assistant Editors.

NOTCHES is a peer-reviewed, collaborative and international history of sexuality blog that aims to get people inside and outside the academy thinking about sexuality in the past and in the present. We encourage a global focus, not only in terms of the content of posts and location of contributors, but also in the conferences and special events in the history of sexuality that we cover.


As an Assistant Editor, you will have the opportunity to gain experience in digital and public history, develop your professional network, and introduce your own research to a broader audience through a successful international blog.

Assistant Editors will help with a range of tasks including:

  • Soliciting new contributions
  • Liaising with contributors
  • Researching images and acquisition
  • Managing our social media presence
  • Compiling book lists and ordering book copies for our Author Interviews feature
  • Assisting in the upkeep of the blog
  • Copyediting submissions
  • Collaborating with our editorial board

Applicants should be advanced graduate students specializing in the history of sexuality. We are particularly interested in candidates with strong communication and organizational skills. An interest in digital humanities and public history is a plus. We are looking for someone who can contribute a maximum of 5 hours of work per week. A minimum commitment of one year is required. This position, like all editorial roles at NOTCHES, is unpaid. Assistant Editors may work from anywhere.

To apply, please send a 1-page cover letter, 1 page CV, and a list of 2 references to Managing Editors at by September 23rd, 2016. Inquiries are most welcome.
