Changes and Congratulations!

With regret, Kritika bids farewell to Simon Dixon, who is leaving us to devote more attention to his many other responsibilities, including a fine European book series with Oxford University Press. We thank him for his contributions, wisdom, and warmth during his service to the journal. Best wishes, Simon!

Martina Winkler now takes on responsibility for book reviews on the 18th and early 19th centuries. She is beginning a new position as lecturer at Loughborough University in the United Kingdom. She is writing a book on the Russian expansion into the North Pacific and has just published “Another America: Russian Mental Discoveries of the Northwest Pacific Region in the Eighteenth and Early Nineteenth Centuries,” Journal of Global History 7, 1 (2012): 27–55. Herzlich willkommen, Martina!

We also congratulate G. M. Hamburg for winning the Association for the Study of Eastern Christianity Article Prize for his “Religious Toleration in Russian Thought, 1520–1825,” which appeared in Kritika 13, 3 (2012): 515–59.
