Western Historical Quarterly Editorial Fellowships

The University of Oklahoma is delighted to announce two new 2-year editorial fellowships at the new home of the Western Historical Quarterly. For either MA or PhD students, the first fellowship will be offered in 2016-2017. In addition to excellent training in writing and editing, fellows will be deeply immersed in the scholarship of western history, including the newest work in a dynamic field. Fellows will work closely with OU faculty to publish a traditional journal as well as new digital content.

Duties at the Western Historical Quarterly (WHQ) include 20 hours a week, beginning in August 2016. The editorial fellows will 1) assist the editors in selecting, preparing, and copy editing manuscripts; 2) assist in all facets of the book review process; and 3) help develop and manage digital content for the journal.

Applications require a statement of purpose and if applicants are interested in this fellowship, they should include in that statement a paragraph that addresses their preparation to work for a scholarly journal focusing on all aspects of the North American West. Applications must be submitted to http://history.ou.edu/graduate-program by December 1.  Applicants will be notified by early 2016.
