The Atlas Undergraduate Journal of World History is looking for editors for its 2016/17 editorial board! The Atlas has been publishing outstanding student work for over ten years, and editors are a significant component of the Journal’s success. We feature original research produced by Undergraduate Students in the field of History and publish annually in April. If you would like to be part of our team, please apply by October 2nd.

Responsibilities:

In the first term, members of the Atlas Editorial Board will attend editing workshops in October and November, as well as meetings on marketing and logistics for the current year. Other responsibilities in the first term may include promoting our call for submissions through posters and classroom announcements. During the second term, the editorial board will review, evaluate and edit the submitted papers; thus the majority of the Editors’ time commitment will be in the months of February and March. During this peak time, Editors can expect to commit up to 10 hours a week.

Qualifications:

Applicants need to show strong writing and analysis skills and be able to meet firm deadlines. Previous experience is not required. A strong interest in history is an asset, but being a history major or minor is not a requirement. Editors are required, at the time of their acceptance, to join the History Students’ Association if they have not already.

Application:

Your application should be sent to atlasjournal@gmail.com and should include the following:

  • A brief statement of interest.

We hope that by putting this edition and others online, everyone will be able to enjoy the Atlas and the outstanding research done by undergraduate students at UBC (a sentiment shared by our previous Editors-in-Chief).
