Jan Wojcik
Jan Wojcik served as Book Review Editor for the Journal of the History of Philosophy from 2001-2005. As a graduate student she had the chance to travel overseas to consult archives in Europe, an experience from which she considered she had benefited greatly. She would have wished other graduate students to have a similar opportunity for travel abroad.
