NAIS Journal

2017 NAISA Editor Search

 

Dr. Jean O’Brien and Dr. Robert Warrior will complete their term as Founding Editors of NAIS: Native American and Indigenous Studies at the end of the 2019 NAISA annual meeting. The NAISA Council has initiated the search for their successor(s), whose appointment will be a four-year term beginning June 1, 2019. To assure a smooth transition, the new editor(s) will be named in mid-2018.

We strongly encourage candidates to discuss their intentions with their academic administrators (deans, department chairs, etc.) so that they can come to the interview prepared to articulate the institutional support they will receive if appointed to the editorship (for example, course releases, graduate and/or other student or staff support, any additional financial contribution). The new Editor will be expected to be in regular contact with the current Editors during 2018-2019 to ensure an orderly transition, taking over full responsibility on June 1, 2019
