Editor-in-Chief Positions Are OPEN at Crook & Folly

Crook & Folly, DePaul University’s award-winning, all-student journal of literature and art, seeks applications from graduate and undergraduate students for two challenging and exciting volunteer positions as 2021-22 Editors-in-Chief.  

The new editors will connect with the current editors sometime during Summer 2021 and will hire their section editors during Fall quarter 2020.  In usual years Editors-In-Chief must be enrolled and available during all regular quarters of the entire 2021-2022 academic year, and must be enrolled and in-residence at DePaul for the Winter and Spring 2021 quarters. Campus/remote expectations for the editors will shift in accordance with University guidelines for on-campus operations.  

Candidates for Editor-in-Chief should write a one-page (around 250 words) application letter describing relevant experience and commitment as well as vision for the magazine, and email it, as an attachment, to Professor Borich on or before 11:59 PM on Monday May 10th, 2021: bborich@depaul.eduProfessor Borich, the outgoing faculty advisor, will team up with Professor Ted Anton, the incoming faculty advisor, to conduct interviews via Zoom in mid-May, and make the appointments before the end of Spring Quarter 2021.  Please apply only if you are interested in the Editor-in-Chief position. All applications are considered, but current Crook & Folly staff members receive priority consideration for the head editor slots. (We strongly encourage newcomers to wait to apply to editorial staff positions in the Fall). Crook & Folly will call for staff and section editor applications in September 2021.  

If you have questions about what the work of the Editors-in-Chief entails,  please email crookandfolly@gmail.com and ask the  current Crook & Folly editors Caley and Jessica for their assistance. 

Learn about Careers in the Museum Field

Jobs at Art Museums (JAM) is a career awareness event at the Art Institute of Chicago. This year the event has been reimagined as a series of 12 presentations on Zoom over the course of winter and spring. Each talk will focus on a different theme, from Art & Science, to Community Programs, to “Handle with Care” (staff who actually touch objects), and more. 

College and university students are invited to conversations with museum professionals representing a variety of departments and fields. Learn about upcoming internship and career opportunities and virtually socialize with peers and museum staff.
