Cambridge Companions to Literature are lively, accessible introductions to major writers, topics, and periods. All are collections of specially commissioned essays, shaped and introduced to appeal to student readers. Each volume, the one on Mary Prince and the other on Ignatius Sancho, brings together 12-16 essays that are intended to offer a systematic critical account of each writer. The scholarly edition of Ignatius Sancho's Letters will be published as part of Oxford World Classics series. Like the Cambridge Companion series, it is aimed at college/university student readers.
Potential candidates should be conscientious researchers, and have the ability to copyedit academic prose. Very strong organizational and communication skills are necessary. Familiarity with 18th- and 19th-century Black Atlantic Literature or History is desirable but not necessary. Much of the work can be completed remotely.
