American Political Thought Seeking Editorial Team

American Political Thought Editorship Call for Proposals


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 in Summer 2019 with the possibility, ordinarily, of one renewed term. We seek 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.   We are open to proposals that include innovative individual and institutional collaborations, including teams within a single institution or across multiple institutions. Your application 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.  It 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.

The deadline for proposals is December 1, 2018. Please send completed proposals to Benjamin Kleinerman at


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. Professor Michael Zuckert, director of the American Constitutional Studies Program at the University of Notre Dame, serves as its editor.

For more information about the journal, including how to submit articles for consideration, please click here.
