The Society for American Archaeology invites applications or nominations for the editorship of American Antiquity. The editorship may be held by

a single individual or jointly.

American Antiquity is one means by which SAA carries out a central mission, scholarly journal publishing. Its subscription list is composed of those

SAA members who opt for the journal as a membership benefit, and of libraries and institutional subscribers. The SAA Board is strongly committed

to providing the means by which the society’s journals, American Antiquity and Latin American Antiquity, will flourish in changing conditions for

academic publishing.

The editor(s) has overall responsibility for journal’s functioning and final responsibility for all content within general policies established by the SAA

Board. The journal’s production is done from the SAA office in Washington.

Although editors of the SAA journals have often been senior scholars of long experience, individuals of less senior standing may be better placed

to devote the necessary time and attention to the journal. The central qualifications are a good knowledge of the field American Antiquity covers,

with a broad respect for the varied research attitudes and traditions within it; specific editing experience is helpful.

The editorship is unpaid. The editor(s) will be expected to provide some institutional support for their office, and to ensure they have sufficient

time to carry out their responsibilities; release time of at least 25 percent from university teaching commitments has been customary.

The term of the editor is for a period of three years; it may be renewed once thereafter.

The editor position falls vacant on April 30, 2004 when the present editor, Timothy A. Kohler, completes his term. The editorship is preceded by an

overlap period with him beginning January 1, 2004. SAA anticipates making the appointment late in 2002 or early in 2003.

Available to discuss the post informally are Kohler (Department of Anthropology, Washington State University, Pullman, WA 99164-4910; phone:

[509] 335-2770; e-mail:; and the chair of the SAA Publications Committee, Christopher Chippindale (contact information below),

who leads the search.

Applications outlining relevant qualifications and expected local institutional support arrangements, along with a current vita, should be directed

to Christopher Chippindale, Cambridge University Museum of Archaeology & Anthropology, Downing Street, Cambridge CB2 3DZ, England, phone:

(44) 1223-333512, FAX: (44) 1223-333503 e-mail by September 30, 2002.
