Call for Editorial Committee Members
Deadline: The deadline to serve on the 2022-2023 editorial committee has passed. Please check back for updates on the 2023-24 application cycle.
The Rapoport Center invites UT graduate students to apply to serve on the editorial committee of its Human Rights Working Paper Series (WPS). Editorial committee members will review and select submissions, lightly edit accepted papers, and advertise new works on social media. We will meet virtually on a monthly basis to discuss papers submitted to the WPS and delegate responsibilities.
The WPS is dedicated to interdisciplinary and critical dialogue about international human rights law and discourse. We accept submissions from anyone working in the field of human rights and justice. Submitted papers are reviewed by an interdisciplinary student editorial committee and, if accepted, are published on the WPS website.
The Series aims to provide a lively, productive environment for debate about human rights among academics, policymakers, activists, practitioners, and the wider public. To this end, the WPS blog serves as a site for dialogue related to the working papers and other contemporary human rights issues. The editorial committee offers an opportunity to gain experience editing academic articles and writing scholarly blogs.
