We are writing to share the wonderful news that Beverly Weber (University of Colorado Boulder) has been appointed Co-Editor of Feminist German Studies for a three-year term starting in January 2022. Beverly will be joining Alexandra Hill as FGS Co-Editor at the conclusion of Co-Editor Hester Baer’s term. Beverly comes to the position with a strong record of research, publication, and editing experience. The search committee was especially impressed with Beverly’s dedication and leadership within the organization, her vision for the journal, and her demonstrated understanding of the importance of strong feminist mentorship and the role that the journal plays in mentoring scholars at various stages in their lives and careers. Beverly’s commitment to antiracist feminism, decolonization, and social justice as well as her desire to facilitate transdisciplinary conversations across fields will serve the journal well. We are truly honored that Beverly has agreed to accept this position and look forward to seeing the continued rigorous and innovative feminist scholarship that will emerge in the years ahead.
We wish to thank the search committee members for their hard work: Angineh Djavadghazaryans, Carrie Smith, Lisa Hock, Rob McFarland, and Helga Thorson.
