Call for Proposals: American Political Thought Journal Editorial Team

The American Political Thought organized section of the American Political Science Association seeks proposals for an editor or group of editors to lead the journal American Political Thought for a four-year term beginning May 15, 2023, with the possibility, ordinarily, of one renewed term.

The section seeks an editorial team with a commitment to the highest scholarly standards. The journal also aims to represent a wide range of disciplinary approaches to this field, including those coming from History and other related disciplines.

They welcome proposals that include innovative individual and institutional collaborations, including teams within a single institution or across multiple institutions.

Applications should address questions of institutional support, i.e., what kinds of monetary and other forms of support your institution(s) is (are) willing to contribute. They should also address the various roles you imagine for each participant in the editorship and the time
allocations they will be given to commit to this endeavor.

Please send completed proposals to Russell Muirhead at

The deadline for proposals is December 2, 2022.



About American Political Thought

In 2012, The University of Chicago Press and the Jack Miller Center launched the journal, American Political Thought: A Journal of Ideas, Institutions and Culture, the only peer-reviewed academic journal exclusively devoted to its subject.

With a great many quality submissions and an impressive backlog, the journal moved from a twice-yearly to a quarterly publication in 2015.

This multidisciplinary journal provides a much-needed venue for scholars interested in works and themes around American political thought. Professors Jeremy D. Bailey at the University of Oklahoma and Susan McWilliams Barndt at Pomona College are co-editors of the journal. The journal is published in association with the American political thought organized section of the American Political Science Association and the Jack Miller Center.

Current and back issues of the journal, as well as information about how to submit articles for consideration can be found here.
