Maggie McKinley and Matthew Shipe Named Next Executive Co-Editors of Philip Roth Studies
The publications subcommittee (as selected by the Roth Society’s Executive Council and the current co-editors of Philip Roth Studies) are delighted to announce the selection of Maggie McKinley and Matthew Shipe as the new Executive Co-Editors of PRS for a five-year term beginning in Spring 2024. Maggie and Matthew’s first work in this role will be for the Fall 2024 issue of the journal, Vol 20, No. 2. Maggie and Matthew are highly accomplished authors in the field of Roth studies, and well beyond. They come with a great reputation in book and journal editorship also. What is more, their depth of experience as society members and Executive Council members makes them ideal as the new editorial team for our journal. Much gratitude and plaudits go out to Aimee Pozorski and Mauren Scheurer for their outstanding work as co-editors over the past number of years. They have ensured that Philip Roth Studies remains a vigorous and dynamic scholarly arena for all things Roth. Aimee and Maren are finishing their work with the upcoming Spring 2024 issue, Vol. 20, No. 2. Thank you both for all your great work. Congratulations to Matthew and Maggie. We all look forward to your work with PRS in the forthcoming years. Sincerely, The Publications Subcommittee Andy Connolly, Deb Shostak, and Jim Bloom
