There have also been some editorial changes on this blog. Andrea Westermann, who played a huge role in launching Migrant Knowledge, has returned to the ETH Zürich in Switzerland. There, she is working on a book project entitled “Earth Matters: Between Terrestrial and Social Scales.” We will miss Andrea, and we thank her for her engagement, her elan, her creative insights, and her collegiality.
Swen Steinberg and Mark Stoneman remain on the Migrant Knowledge editorial team, and they are being joined by Andrea’s successor at the GHI’s Pacific Office, Sören Urbansky, as well as by a new GHI fellow in Washington, DC, Andreas Greiner. Andreas is also joining Mark and Swen on our Twitter account, @migknow. His own handle there is @AndGreiner.
