Dr Muireann Maguire has now taken on the Slavonic desk, so to speak, of Modern Language Review, succeeding her University of Exeter colleague Emily Lygo — we thank Emily for her service, and we thank Muireann for taking on the role.
In the field of modern languages, MLR is an almost omnivorous journal, reviewing books and publishing articles with an enormous range: so much so that it is organised in language-area departments. Though herself a Russianist, Muireann is thus also the responsible editor for other Slavonic languages too.
Muireann is very happy to be approached by publishers of titles in the field who have books to be reviewed, and also by would-be reviewers. Just as MLR depends on the expertise of its subject editors, it also depends on a broad range of reviewers for its books.
