Editor, Journal of the Gilded Age and Progressive Era 

The Society for Historians of the Gilded Age and Progressive Era (SHGAPE) is issuing a call for proposals to edit The Journal of the Gilded Age and Progressive Era, a scholarly, peer-reviewed journal published quarterly by Cambridge University Press. JGAPE publishes original essays, historiographic overviews, forums, and reviews of scholarly books on all aspects of U.S. history for the time period from 1865 through 1920. The term of appointment will begin in August 2023, will extend for five years, and may be renewed. The first year of the appointment will overlap with the outgoing editor’s final year to ensure a smooth transition. The position requires support from the editor’s home institution, which generally includes course release time and some level of administrative assistance.  Applicants should submit the following to Amy Wood at

  1. A C.V. 
  2. Two letters of recommendation 
  3. A proposal (5 pp. maximum) that assesses the JGAPE as it now stands, offers a vision for the journal as it evolves, and specifies likely institutional support.  

Review of applications will begin on January 9, 2023 and will continue until the position is filled. For additional information the search and/or the journal, please see or
