Call for Editorial Board Members


Since 1975, Atlantis has published scholarly work in critical, intersectional gender studies. The journal is currently published by Mount Saint Vincent University in Halifax/Kjipuktuk. Atlantis publishes two, open-access digital issues per calendar year.

Atlantis acknowledges the historical and ongoing inequity at all stages of academic publishing. We are committed to addressing this issue through our editorial practices and the scholarship published in the journal.

We invite applications from all scholars in Women and Gender Studies and related fields. In particular, we welcome applications from scholars working in Critical Race Studies, Critical Indigenous Studies, Critical Disability Studies or, more generally, whose research focuses on dismantling hierarchies and exclusions based on racism, sexism, colonialism and/or ableism.

Editorial Board members will have a PhD in a relevant field (or a graduate degree-in-progress combined with community-based work) and will have a publication portfolio that includes research articles, books or book chapters, or other forms of scholarly work, including art exhibits, installations and performance pieces.

The Atlantis Editorial Board provides editorial direction for the journal, including deciding on publishing policies, choosing themes for journal issues, assisting in the editorial process as required, and selecting additional Board members. Appointments are for three years with potential renewal upon request. Board members are encouraged to guest-edit one themed issue of the journal during their appointment. The Board meets quarterly (virtually or in person). Further details regarding the position are available on request.

To apply, please submit your full CV and a brief (250 word) statement on why you would like to join our Editorial Board. Send these documents to Katherine Barrett, Managing Editor:

Prospective candidates will be given the opportunity to meet the current Board and journal staff for discussion and questions.
