The APA is starting a blog! Will you be its editor?

I am pleased to announce that the APA board of officers has undertaken an effort to launch an APA blog. The blog will give the APA a major presence in the blogosphere, while helping to serve the mission of the association and providing a forum for the APA to disseminate important information and publicly address the membership on critical issues.
The blog will include a wide variety of content: newsworthy philosophical achievements and successes, topics of philosophical interest, current events outside of philosophy, issues concerning the profession, information about APA events and activities, posts about APA grant-funded projects, and more.
The blog will have a lead editor, assisted by a team of associate editors and members of the APA staff who will serve as managing editors. The editorial team will oversee the blog and its content, working closely with an advisory team and APA leadership. The APA will provide stipends for lead and associate editors.
We now invite applications for the position of lead editor. Applicants for lead editor should be established philosophers with appropriate experience, and must be members of the association. Applications must include a cover letter, a short curriculum vitae (three pages maximum), and a brief statement describing the applicant’s approach to running the blog.
Submit an application via the APA website.
For more information about the position or the application process, contact Erin Shepherd, the APA’s communications and publications coordinator, at [email protected].
Applications will be accepted until the position is filled, but we strongly encourage interested members to apply by March 2; applications submitted by that date will receive full consideration.
Stay tuned for more news about the APA blog in the coming months!
All the best,
Amy E. Ferrer
