The Peer Review: Graduate Student Reviewers

The Peer Review is recruiting Graduate Student Reviewers! GSRs both serve as inside reviewers in our double-blind, two-step review process and represent graduate students on the TPR board.

Duties include reading and offering written feedback on submissions; promptly replying to all correspondence; attending all board meetings and participating in board decisions; promoting the journal at conferences and professional gatherings; and supporting efforts to recruit submissions.

GSRs have a two-year term limit, must be graduate students at the time of application, and may only publish reviews and interviews in TPR, but not their own scholarship or research while serving in this role

 Application: Brief biography, description of why you want the position, and CV (1-2 page) emailed to editorstpr@gmail.com by February 17th. The position will be announced March 1, with work starting immediately.

Digital Media Research

Rick Wysocki is the digital media research assistant this year. He will have open hours in the Mac Lab (HUM 204) all semester to help Faculty, Graduate Students, and students with multimodal and digital projects. His hours are Mondays from 1-2 p.m. and Fridays from 203 p.m. From Rick: “I’m happy to help people across the university with their digital/multimodal projects. It is also a good thing for teachers to let their students know about if they need access to a computer or specifically to a Mac.”
