Editorial Changes

Posted in Announcements

We express our deep appreciation to Susanne Schattenberg, who is stepping down as associate editor after almost 17 years with the journal. We thank her for her many contributions to Kritika and wish her success in her future endeavors.

Gregory Afinogenov is moving up from his current post to become a full editor of Kritika, succeeding Erika Monahan, who recently won a Humboldt Fellowship allowing her to pursue her research on the early modern cartography of Central Asia. Erika will continue to oversee the History Ex Silo series of podcasts on the New Books Network, which she initiated.

Among the associate editors, Alexandra Oberländer is shifting her focus from the imperial period to international contacts and the post-Stalin USSR, including historically focused reviews and review essays about the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991 and its consequences. Maria Grazia Bartolini, associate professor at the Università degli Studi di Milano and author of numerous books and articles on the cultural and religious history of 17th-century Russia and Ukraine, will oversee reviews of books about the earliest times through the death of Peter the Great. Ian W. Campbell—associate professor of history at the University of California, Davis, and the author of Knowledge and the Ends of Empire, as well as a new study focusing on counterinsurgency and violence in the imperial borderlands—will com- mission reviews on the 18th, 19th, and early 20th centuries. Matthias Neumann will continue to cover the years from 1917 through 1953.
