The current editors of the Journal of the Gilded Age and Progressive Era are Rosanne, and Brian Ingrassia,

Rosanne Currarino is a historian of the intellectual and cultural history of economic life in nineteenth-century America. She received her Ph.D. from Rutgers University in 1999 and is currently an associate professor of history at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. 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.

Brian Ingrassia is an Associate Professor of History and the Associate Director of the Center for the Study of the American West at West Texas A & M University.  He is the author of the prize-winning Rise of Gridiron University: Higher Education’s Uneasy Alliance with Big-Time Football (University Press of Kansas, 2012) and Speed Capital: Indianapolis Auto Racing and the Making of Modern America (forthcoming from the University of Illinois Press), in addition to numerous articles and essays. He currently serves as series editor of the Sports & Popular Culture Series at the University of Tennessee Press.
