    Description of tasks of work as an editorial assistant (or intern):
    editorial assistants of the journal work with the editor in the process of
    production of all materials published in the journal. In their work, the
    editorial assistants receive on-going training and guidance from the
    editor; work with the journal affords editorial assistants with knowledge
    and expertise in the processes of editing, new media scholarship and
    technology, the publishing industry, methods and new knowledge management
    of scholarship in the humanities, and, overall, in the acquiring of
    knowledge in the current state of scholarship in the humanities; editorial
    assistants are graduate students in the humanities and they work with the
    journal using e-mail and the world wide web; owing to the advantages
    available in new media technology, the physical location and space of work
    of the editorial assistant are of no import. This is in keeping with the
    international nature of new media technology and scholarship as well as in
    keeping with the aims and objectives of the disciplines of comparative
    literature, cultural studies, and comparative cultural studies; as scholars
    in comparative literature, cultural studies, or in other disciplines in the
    humanities and social sciences, the journal's editorial assistants are with
    knowledge in several languages and cultures including literature, the other
    arts, history, etc.; the language of publication of the journal is English
    and work with the journal requires advanced competency in English;
    editorial assistants of the journal are listed on the masthead (index page)
    of the journal in order to make visible the scholarly and academic nature
    and importance of their work; while at this point the work of editorial
    assistants is a voluntary position without remuneration, assistants are
    encouraged to engage the department of their studies and to apply for
    graduate assistantship with their home institution for their work with the
    journal; editorial assistants are with basic knowledge in computers and new
    media technology and are encouraged to acquire knowledge of the rapidly
    developing world of new media technology such as multimedia, web design,
    etc.; the tasks of an editorial assistant include work with electronic
    files such as the cleaning of hidden codes in material the journal acquires
    for publication (e.g., in wordperfect by open codes window, in word using
    an HTML filter), editing for style (MLA parenthetical and works cited),
    grammar, and spelling, the conversion of files from a word processing
    program into HTML, the checking and up-keep of links (URLs) in the articles
    and book review articles published, etc.; if and when required and
    advantageous, editorial assistants are encouraged to engage in direct
    contact with the authors of work to be published in the journal; editorial
    assistants engage in the compilation of news relevant for distribution in
    the journal's moderated listserv (such material is forwarded to the
    editor); editorial assistants engage in the compilation of names and
    addresses (including, where available, the listing of and linking to web
    pages of the scholar's CV and list of publications) of scholars in the
    humanities who agree to be listed in the "International Directory of
    Scholars in the Humanities" in the Library
    <http://clcwebjournal.lib.purdue.edu/library.html> of the journal;
    editorial assistants engage in the journal's offer to be listed with link
    in online libraries of journals of university libraries and other
    appropriate web sites; the tasks of editorial assistants include work with
    Books in Comparative Cultural Studies, a series published by Purdue
    University Press <http://www.thepress.purdue.edu/series/compstudies.asp> &
    <http://clcwebjournal.lib.purdue.edu/ccs-purdue.html> (series editor is the
    editor of the journal). The series publishes annuals of the journal with
    selected papers from the year's work as well as other volumes (single
    authored and edited). Those interested please contact the editor of CLCWeb,
    Steven Totosy, at <clcweb@purdue.edu> or <totosy@medienkomm.uni-halle.de>.
