The International Exchanges on the Study of Writing (https://wac.colostate.edu/books/international/) book series is part of the WAC Clearinghouse. The series publishes books that address worldwide perspectives on writing, writers, teaching with writing, and scholarly writing practices, specifically those that draw on scholarship across national and disciplinary borders to challenge parochial understandings of all of the above.
The Latin America Section of the International Exchanges on the Study of Writing (IE) book series (https://wac.colostate.edu/books/international/la/) publishes peer-reviewed books about writing, writers, teaching with writing, and scholarly writing practices from Latin American perspectives. It also offers re-editions of recognized peer-reviewed books originally published in the region.
The Associate Editor Role of the Latin America Section involves working with the section’s editors, collaborating on editorial oversight, coordinating communications with reviewers, managing the section’s web page, and participating in the ongoing conversations about the section’s future directions. The section’s editors and associate editor meet virtually to discuss updates or issues with production and projects in process, to assign tasks on new and developing projects, and to plan online events. The incoming associate editor will benefit from mentorship from both of the section’s editors.
The time commitment will vary throughout the year, depending on the projects being led by the series editors. On average, the associate editors can expect to spend up to 4 hours a month over the course of a year.
