Announcement: Search for Editor, Film and Philosophy


The Society for the Philosophic Study of the Contemporary Visual Arts (SPSCVA) seeks a new

long-term editor for its journal, Film and Philosophy.


Publication of the journal in print and electronic format is managed on the Society's behalf by the Philosophy Documentation Center (PDC). Members of the Society receive either a print or online copy of the journal (or both). The journal is currently published once a year and typically has nine articles. There are generally between twenty and thirty submissions, all of which are blind reviewed by the journal’s editorial board, supplemented by other reviewers when necessary. There are currently thirteen members of the Editorial Board.


The position of Editor of Film & Philosophy is not remunerated. Among the duties of the editor: soliciting articles for the journal; securing blind reviews for the articles; notifying authors about the decisions of the Editorial Board; preparing the accepted articles (including supervision of any necessary revisions) so that the PDC can generate page proofs from them; writing a brief introduction to each issue; working with the PDC to get the issue published and circulated.


Nominations and self-nominations are encouraged. Nominations should include any previous editing experience, current academic position, publications related to the field of philosophy of film, and a statement of interest that details the candidate’s qualifications and vision for the journal.
