Call for Language Editors: History of Comm Bibliography

Professional OpportunitiesCall for Language Editors for the History of Communication Research Bibliography, Annenberg School for Communication Library Archives, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA.

The History of Communication Research Bibliography, started in 2009, recently surpassed 2,500 articles, chapters, and books on the history of communication, media, and film studies. The bibliography’s DOI is 10.5281/zenodo.4127038. A searchable version of the bibliography is available on the ASCLA site.

The open-source project has, up to now, included only English-language publications. Editors are looking to recruit volunteer editors to curate additions to the bibliography in other languages, including Chinese, Spanish, Portuguese, and German.

If you have an interest in the history of the field, and proficiency in a language with a sizable communication-research literature, please consider indicating your interest by writing to Jefferson Pooley (Professor of Media & Communication, Muhlenberg College, PA). Bibliography editors will look over the expressions of interest, and follow up with invitations to the self-nominated editors. The aim is to move to a model with a single editor for each language, working in close coordination with the other editors to maintain and expand the bibliography.
