Coda and kudos

April 20, 2017

As some of the scholars who have been lucky enough to review books in the pages of Times Higher Education, we’d like to say thank you to Karen Shook, as she leaves the role of books editor for pastures new.

She has been a generous, responsive, open and thoughtful editor, with a sense of what matters and a deep understanding of what makes academics, and academic work, tick.

We wish her the very best.
