    I am shocked at the stipend of €500 for the post of Assistant Editor. Surely, as this is way below the minimum wage, it constitutes an illegal stipend to offer anyone. This advertised job is an insult to anyone interested in working in the arts.

      Hi Brid, I’m sorry you feel that way, but it’s not a salaried job, nor is it one with regular weekly hours (many weeks with none at all). It only concerns the production of a single journal issue. I’ll amend the blogpost title and listing slightly if there was any confusion there — this is a non-profit academic journal run voluntarily by a small team, and you will find most academic projects are run on a similar basis.
