Political Geography is pleased to announce the latest addition to the editorial team: Tor Benjaminsen of the Norwegian University of Life Sciences, who has joined the journal as an associate editor. Tor will be replacing James Sidaway, who is stepping aside after over a decade with the journal. James will be winding down the articles that he’s currently working on, with plans to leave the journal by the end of the year.
Tor, whose research interests range from the political drivers and impacts of soil loss in the Sahel to notions of “green governmentality” to Sami reindeer herding in Finnmark, brings an expertise in political ecology and environment-development politics to the journal. Additionally, his fluency in French (as well as Norwegian) and his extensive research in Africa should help expand Political Geography beyond the Anglo-American tradition. We’re delighted to have him join the journal and look forward to the many contributions that he’ll be making over the coming years.
