Gaynor Johnson becomes editor in chief of prestigious journal

The achievements of Kent’s historians were recognised once again earlier this month when Professor Gaynor Johnson was made Editor in Chief of the prestigious journal The International History Review.

Published by Taylor and Francis, The International History Review is the only journal in the English language which is entirely devoted to the history of international relations and the history of international thought. Since it began in 1979 with an emphasis on the histories of current conflicts, its articles have been regularly cited by both political scientists and historians alike. We are therefore delighted that Professor Johnson will be taking the helm of the publication’s editorial team, further confirming the School of History’s reputation as an internationally-renowned community for historical research.

Professor Johnson has been a popular teacher and valued colleague at the School of History for many years. A prolific researcher and active member of the international history community, she has also recently taken up the editorship of Diplomacy & Statecraft, also published by Taylor and Francis.
