Once an editor, always an editor….

Thus far in my academic career, I have edited Lenses, the literary textbook used by graduate teaching assistants at University of North Carolina Greensboro, edited Hortulus: The Online Graduate Journal in Medieval Studies, and served as book reviews editor for Medieval Feminist Forum. I am also currently entering into a two-year period as book reviews editor for College Literature. It’s a good thing I happen to enjoy editing, because ….

I am very happy to announce that I have accepted the offer to join the editorial board of The Heroic Age: A Journal of Early Medieval Northwestern Europe as Associate Editor. The Heroic Age was one of the first open-access digital scholarly journals in medieval studies, and we are working on initiatives to update the interface and bring it into line with contemporary journal appearances and functionality. Meanwhile, we are also looking for your excellent scholarship on medieval Europe c. 4th-13th centuries, in any subject field for our general issues. Don’t forget as well the special issue on “New Feminist Voices in the Heroic Age” that is accepting submissions through early Fall! Send me your work, people!  🙂
