Here at The Junto, a group blog of early American historians, we’re looking for new voices to expand our coverage of this exciting field. We are seeking new members to further diversify the content of the blog and join our community of like-minded friends and scholars. New members commit to posting at least six times a year, and to helping with the blog’s administration. All Juntoists create and edit their own posts, solicit guest posts, organize interviews, reviews, and roundtables, and shape the direction of the blog. While unpaid, joining the Junto is a terrific opportunity to develop your public profile as a scholar and engage in an online intellectual community.
We’re especially keen to encourage those who can extend our coverage of #VastEarlyAmerica, and we welcome scholars from across the disciplines, who are furthering the field from inside and outside of the university. If you’d like to discuss joining the blog before sending an application, you’re welcome to get in touch with any of the contributors by email. We look forward to meeting you!
Potential new members should send us two sample posts of 500-800 words, along with two other ideas for posts, a brief CV, and a paragraph about your scholarly interests. Please send these materials as one Word or PDF document to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 15th, 2018.
