EDITOR’S NOTE

EDITOR’S NOTE French History, Vol. 32, No. 1 (2018) doi:10.1093/fh/cry007 This January, our co-editor Penny Roberts started a new role at Warwick University as Chair of the Faculty of Arts. She has decided, as a result, that it is time to pass on her co-editorship of French History. I have enjoyed working with Penny enormously over the last few years and wish to record deep thanks to her for her collegiality, insight, wit and intelligence. Penny has given the journal gravitas and authority and has upheld the high standards that we aspire to while supporting new initiatives and younger scholars. She will I know con- tinue to give us clear advice and warm support, as she has done for many years for the Society for the Study of French History as a whole. We are, simultaneously, saying goodbye and thank you to Tim Baycroft as book reviews editor. Tim has brought energy to what is a Sisyphean task and has worked with a number of assistants to make our book reviews better organ- ized and well produced. There are times when any book reviews editor would have had every right to express frustration with the task and Tim has been so kind and so ‘glass half full’ in fulfilling his role! I am very pleased to announce that Joseph Clarke from Trinity College, Dublin, has agreed to succeed Penny Roberts as a co-editor covering the ear- lier chronological half of the journal’s output. Joseph is an outstanding histo- rian of the French Revolution and well known to colleagues around the world but particularly in the United Kingdom and Ireland Society for the Study for French History. We also welcome Stewart McCain as a new book reviews edi- tor. Stewart is a historian of language in the era of Napoleon and lecturer at St Mary’s Twickenham. We will shortly be announcing a new venture for the journal: the appoint- ment of two assistant editors. We wish to provide opportunities for colleagues who want to gain experience of editing and who may in the future hope to take up an editorship (at French History or elsewhere) but who want to develop their experience first.

Abstract

French History, Vol. 32, No. 1 (2018) doi:10.1093/fh/cry007 This January, our co-editor Penny Roberts started a new role at Warwick University as Chair of the Faculty of Arts. She has decided, as a result, that it is time to pass on her co-editorship of French History. I have enjoyed working with Penny enormously over the last few years and wish to record deep thanks to her for her collegiality, insight, wit and intelligence. Penny has given the journal gravitas and authority and has upheld the high standards that we aspire to while supporting new initiatives and younger scholars. She will I know con- tinue to give us clear advice and warm support, as she has done for many years for the Society for the Study of French History as a whole. We are, simultaneously, saying goodbye and thank you to Tim Baycroft as book reviews editor. Tim has brought energy to what is a Sisyphean task and has worked with a number of assistants to make our book reviews better organ- ized and well produced. There are times when any book reviews editor would have had every right to express frustration with the task and Tim has been so kind and so ‘glass half full’ in fulfilling his role! I am very pleased to announce that Joseph Clarke from Trinity College, Dublin, has agreed to succeed Penny Roberts as a co-editor covering the ear- lier chronological half of the journal’s output.
