Call for Applications and Nominations - Editor, Dewey Studies (DS)

Call for Applications and Nominations - Editor, Dewey Studies (DS)
The journal, established in 2016, is an online peer-reviewed open-access international publication of the John Dewey Society. It is published twice a year. DS seeks to cover the wide and burgeoning scholarship on the philosophy of John Dewey. Its intent is to seek readers and submissions from scholaers in departments of philosophy, but also in such places as departments of literature, art, journalism, political science, communications, sociology and elsewhere. We also invite scholars located in schools and colleges and departments of education to submit articles and research note on aspects of Dewey's work not narrowly focused on education. There are three journals of the society, the other two being  Education and Culture and Journal of School and Society.
DS was founded and is edited by Leonard Waks, emeritus professor of education at Temple University and distinguished professor at Hangzhou Normal University.
The new editor would have the responsibility to publish two issues a year with the assistance of an editorial board. The new editor would seek and review articles for publication and populate and manage the editorial board as well as other reviewers.  Ideally, the new editor would have the resources to host the journal on a server. Though the position is unpaid, some editors of JDS journals have managed to negotiate course releases, graduate assistant help, and other resources from their universities. An annual written report to the officers of the society is expected.
Please send a letter of interest outlining your qualifications and your vision for the journal, and include a curriculum vitae and a letter of support from a supervisor, such as a department chair/head or dean. Term is for three years and is renewable.
A team of no more than two editors may be considered, with explanation of how the arrangement would work.
Letters of interest and supporting documents as well as questions may be sent to AG Rud, Past President, John Dewey Society and Distinguished Professor, Washington State University, Applications are due no later than August 1, 2020 and the term of service would begin on January 1, 2021. Nominations may also be sent to Professor Rud and the nominees will be asked to apply.
