Apply to the Editorial Board

The UChicago Philosophy Review is currently seeking applicants to its editorial board for the 2017-8 academic year. In order to keep our board diverse, we are looking for editors from all different disciplines (not just philosophy). If you are interested in interdisciplinary applications of philosophy and you would like to work more closely with the journal, please send your application to by August 25th.

We are seeking applications for the following positions:

Personnel Management: Our personnel management officer is responsible for assisting the oversight of the journal’s reviewers. The goals are to enforce deadlines, assist with reviewer training, and retain our members’ interest in UCPR by planning events.

Treasurer: The responsibilities of the treasurer include keeping detailed accounts of the UCPR’s expenses and budgetary needs. The Treasurer is responsible for requesting funds from the University as well as from the Department of Philosophy.

Global Editor: The responsibilities of the global editor are to create and sustain relationships with undergraduate philosophy departments throughout the USA and world. The global editor’s two goals should always be to increase the number of submissions we receive and to increase our readership.

Associate Editors: Associate editors, as well as the treasurer, global editor, web editor, personnel management officer, design editor, and graduate liaison, are responsible for reading the reviewer responses to the submitted papers as well as the papers themselves and coming to a consensus with the Editor in Chief regarding selection.

At the top of the first page of your application:

  1. Your name.
  2. The year you expect to graduate.
  3. Your major or expected major.

Then answer the following questions.

  1. What philosophical idea has been most influential to your personal thought?
  2. Please rank your positions in order of preference #1 as your most preferred and #4 as your least preferred. What are your qualifications for the position you seek?
  3. What ideas do you have that you would like to implement in your role with UCPR, and more generally, in what direction would you like to see the journal move?
  4. Why are you passionate about philosophy and the position you seek on the board?

Thanks so much for your interest!
