We are delighted to announce that Allegra Martschenko will be joining the team here at University Press of Colorado | Utah State University Press as acquisitions editor for anthropology, archaeology, environmental justice, and history. Allegra is currently an acquisitions assistant at Cornell University Press and a Mellon University Press Diversity Fellow who assists two senior editors in acquiring titles in science, European history, military history, and East Asian studies.
