Ars Lyrica editorship

Christian was the head editor of Ars Lyrica: Journal of the Lyrica Society for Word-Music Relations. In this role, she received articles, solicited peer review, fully edited approved articles, and prepared them for text setting. She received book reviews from the reviews editor (Rebecca Geoffroy-Schwinden) and made final edits before approving the final volume for publication.

Two issues were published; these issues reflect the work of past head editors as well, as Christian accepted the position when these issues were in progress. Christian resigned the editorship when she accepted a new full-time job in March 2018.
