Book Reviews Editor is sought!

Call for Proposals: Book Reviews Editor for ICON

ICON, the annual journal of ICOHTEC, is looking for a book reviews editor! We’re looking for an enthusiastic and well-organized historian of technology who would like to take on this role. The book reviews editor invites reviewers for recent books in the history of technology and science that are provided by the publishers and manages the submission of the reviews, ultimately collecting all the reviews and forwarding them to the journal editor. The book reviews editor would start work immediately, managing reviews for the next issue of ICON, which will appear in early 2019. English language editing of the reviews will be carried out by the editor in chief of ICON. If you have an interest in the field and are willing to take on this job, we welcome submission of a short statement of interest (one paragraph) and a short CV (one page). A decision will be made by the end of July.  ICOHTEC does not offer remuneration for work but a book reviews editor gets a lot of opportunities for networking.
