Joining the Political Geography team

November 2, 2017 — Leave a comment

Very happy to be joining the Political Geography team, standing in as Associate Editor while Fiona McConnell is on maternity leave. PG is the leading journal in the subfield, and Fiona is an outstanding colleague, so these are some pretty big shoes to fill! I am joining the journal in January, shortly after Filippo Menga, who is going to be the Setting-the-Agenda Editor.

 

Two new editors at Political Geography

polgeogPolitical Geography has brought on two new associate editors, joining our ever-expanding editorial team.

Today is the first day on the job for Filippo Menga, who is replacing Jo Sharp as associate editor for the Setting-the-Agenda section. Filippo is a lecturer at the University of Reading where his research focuses on the geopolitics of water supply. As editor of the Setting-the-Agenda section, Filippo will be responsible for all non-peer-reviewed content (e.g. review forums, review essays, interventions, guest editorials) as well as online content.

Political Geography is also happy to announce the appointment of Antonis Vradis, who will be replacing Fiona McConnell when she is on maternity leave (January-June 2018). Antonis, who is a Vice Chancellor’s Research Fellow at the University of Loughborough, has expertise in urban and migration issues.

The entire Political Geography editorial team — Tor Benjaminsen, Halvard Buhaug, and Kevin Grove, in addition to Fiona and myself — welcomes Filippo and Antonis, and we look forward to maintaining our standing as the leading international journal in political geography.
