The North American Conference on British Studies invites applications for bloggers for The British and Irish Studies Intelligencer, the society’s online newsletter.

BISI is the NACBS’s primary forum for communication with its members and has its origins in the British Studies Intelligencer (http://www.ulib.iupui.edu/digitalscholarship/collections/BSI), first published by the society in 1962.  The BISI Blog will include discussions about the state of the field, methodological approaches, teaching, reports on conferences and symposia, and editorials focused on British Studies across the disciplines.  It will also provide a space for scholars to share their current research in a format that is accessible to the non-specialist.

BISI Bloggers serve the NACBS in a voluntary capacity, and bloggers should be members of the NACBS.

Responsibilities include commissioning and editing blog posts.  Each blogger will be responsible for working with the NACBS webmaster to commission, edit, and submit at least 3 blog posts per month.  Board members will serve 1-year terms with reappointment possible upon Editorial Board approval.

Please submit your CV and Letter of Application to jaskelly@iupui.edu by May 15, 2014.
