WGSS Professor to co-edit Society and Space- Environment and Planning D

Description

taken from www.societyandspace.com

Mary Thomas has been a review editor of the journal since 2007, and has been central in getting the review part of this open site up and running.

Mary is now moving to be one of the co-editors of the journal. She has already made some important contributions to the work of the journal beyond just book reviews, including the Fictional Worlds symposium, the open site forum Books of the Decade, and editing a virtual theme issue on ‘Boys Town Redux’. Mary still has a number of reviews commissioned, so expect to see plenty more posts from her on this site over the next few months. But she will also now be taking on a coordinating role with a share of article submissions to the journal, and various behind the scenes duties in running the journal. Mary joins Deborah Cowen, Natalie Oswin and Peter Gratton in this role.

The next post will welcome Kathryn Yusoff as our new review and open site editor, alongside Veronica della Dora, who continues in her current role.
