I would like to thank the contributors to this issue for their patience and diligence throughout the process of revision; the editors and peer-reviewers for their meticulous edits and insightful comments; and the guest editors for their openness and conscientiousness at every step of our collaboration. This will be the last volume of TRANSIT for which I have the privilege of serving as managing editor. As the 10-year anniversary of our journal approaches, I am happy to welcome Jon Cho-Polizzi who will be taking over the duties of managing editor.

We would like to remind you that we continue to invite rolling submissions, including translations, articles, and multimedia projects, and we always welcome suggestions for collaborations with guest editors.

We hope you enjoy the second installment of texts in our 2014 volume, and we look forward to possibilities for future collaboration and exchange.


Erik Born, on behalf of the editors of TRANSIT
