The current editors of the Journal of the Gilded Age and Progressive Era are Boyd Cothran, firstname.lastname@example.org, associate professor of history at York University in Toronto, Ontario, and Rosanne Currarino, email@example.com, associate professor of history at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario.
With a Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota in 2012, Professor Cothran serves as the York University history department’s graduate director. A specialist in the history of indigenous peoples, the American West, and global history, among other fields, he is the author of Remembering the Modoc War: Redemptive Violence and the Making of American Innocence (University of North Carolina Press, 2014), which received the 2015 Robert M. Utley Prize for the best book in military history from the Western History Association and was a finalist for the Best First Book in Native American and Indigenous Studies from the Native American and Indigenous Studies Association. With Joan Judge and Adrian Shubert, he edited Woman Warriors and National Heroes: Global Histories (Bloomsbury Academic, 2020). He is currently working on two books intended to combine global history and microhistory. The first, co-authored with Adrian Shubert, is “Vessel of Globalization: The Many Worlds of the Edwin Fox,” a history of the crucial late-19th and early-20th century phase of globalization using the ship the Edwin Fox as a narrative vehicle. The second is “1873: The World the Civil War Made,” a microhistorical study of the major global historical themes of the era through the lens of a single year.
A historian of the intellectual and cultural history of economic life in nineteenth-century America, Professor Currarino received her Ph.D. from Rutgers University in 1999. Her book, The Labor Question in America: Economic Democracy in the Gilded Age (University of Illinois Press, 2011), examines diverse efforts to redefine the parameters of democratic participation in industrial America. She has also written articles on the American Federation of Labor, historical economics and the origins of labor history, and cultural economy. Her current book project, “Orange Grove Capitalism: Imagining the Modern Economy, 1870-1910,” uses Southern California’s fledgling orange industry – from early settlers through the formation of the marketing cooperative Sunkist – as a lens through which to reconsider how we tell the history of the “age of incorporation.” Her research has been supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the Huntington Library.
