French Studies: appointment of new General Editor and Co-Editors

The President of the Society for French Studies invites expressions of interest in the positions of General Editor and Co-Editors (2) of French Studies. The three positions are available from January 2019 when the current General Editor, Professor Tim Unwin, and one of the two currrent Co-Editors, Professor Russell Goulbourne, will both be standing down after seven years in office. The initial period of office for the new appointees will be for five years, with the possibility of renewal at the end of that term for a further agreed period. The expectation is that the incoming appointees will, prior to commencing their term of office, shadow the existing editorial team from July 2018, then from January 2019 continue to work alongside Professor Emma Cayley whose five-year term as Co-Editor began in 2016.

Full details on the positions are available here.

Suggested names, as well as individual expressions of interest (which should include a brief CV), should be sent to Professor Bill Burgwinkle (, President of the Society, by Friday 20 October 2017.
