Looking for TEI News editors

With the launch of its news service and Twitter feed, the TEI is looking for several volunteers to act as news editors.

As news editor, you would

  • Assist in posting TEI Consortium announcements to the news server
  • Act as a contact person and moderator for outside organisations that wish to post to our “Other News” section, ensuring that such announcements are relevant and useful to our community
  • Monitor the TEI’s mailing list (TEI-L@listserv.brown.edu) for announcements, calls for papers, and the like that might make suitable postings to the server.

We are looking for two or three volunteers for this position, ideally in different time zones in order to ensure timely response to new postings.

We expect the positions to involve no more than an hour or two a week of work, which could easily be combined with one’s daily email routine.

The positions might be especially suitable for graduate students, post-docs, or relative newcomers to the field who would like an opportunity to get to know better the breadth of activity in the TEI community. It is also an opportunity for more experienced members of the community to help out the TEI in a way that involves less of a time commitment than serving on the Council or Board.

If you are interested in these positions, or would like to nominate somebody else, please contact the webmaster at news@tei-c.org.
