Since 2010, Symposium has been publishing book reviews and review essays online. Making reviews freely accessible on our website is one way in which we support and try to raise the profile of Canadian scholarship in Continental philosophy. At the beginning of 2016, we introduced a new editorial structure to Symposium’s book reviews section and expanded our editorial board. However, not all of our positions have been filled.

We are looking for area editors for the following subfields:

  • Feminism
  • Queer Theory
  • Indigenous Theory

Our expectation for an area editor is that he or she commissions and brings to publication at least two book reviews in his or her field of specialty over the course of one year. Area editors who meet this requirement will be eligible for renewal for subsequent years.

We are also looking for a bilingual, social-media savvy junior scholar or graduate student to run a Facebook page and Twitter account.

This is a great opportunity to support continental philosophy, gain editorial experience and promote current research in your own area. If you are interested, would like to know more about this opportunity or have any questions, please contact Devin Zane Shaw at
