Letter from the
This issue of Political Theory marks the beginning of the journal’s fiftieth
year. We are honored to begin this momentous celebration by extending our
sincere gratitude to Prof. Juliet Hooker (Brown University), who has accepted
our invitation to join our Executive Editors Board. She will be taking the
place of Prof. Neil Roberts (Williams College), whose term of service to the
Executive Editors Board has ended. Thank you to Prof. Roberts for his
invaluable counsel and support over the years.
We also take this occasion to welcome Alex Diones and Amanda Griffiths
(UCLA, political science PhD candidates) as the journal’s new assistant edi-
tors. They are taking over from the magisterial efforts of Stephen Cucharo
and Rachel Forgash (UCLA, political science PhD candidates), who helped
the current editorial team with transitioning the journal to UCLA and with
shepherding our collective responsibilities at every level of journal produc-
tion throughout this past year.
By the time this issue will have gone to press, the members of the editorial
executive committee will be busy reviewing, collating, and preparing our
fiftieth anniversary confabulation on the futures of political theory. We thank
all of you who have submitted your engaging proposals. It has been a true
treat to read them all.
Though the coeditors have chosen to look forward for our celebratory
volume, a fiftieth-year anniversary also calls for some reflection on what has
come before. Past retrospective issues have noted changing intellectual trends
in the profession, whereas others have published guest-edited volumes engag-
ing the rich archive of essays published over the years. We invite readers of
Political Theory to return to these past projects, and especially invite you to
consider including some of these in your courses and syllabi as they remain
current in their breadth, complexity, and relevance.
One matter we have noted in preparing for the fiftieth year of publication
is the rich variety of approaches to reading political theory that continue to
interest scholars and contributors throughout the world. As a journal com-
mitted to publishing the best work in political theory research, we tend to
