The American Political Science Association (APSA) has announced History of Consciousness professors Banu Bargu & Massimiliano Tomba will join scholar Kevin Olson on the editorial board of the historic Political Theory journal in January of next year. 

Political Theory is a peer-reviewed journal published bi-monthly, and serves as the leading forum for the development and exchange of political ideas. Broad in scope and international in coverage, the journal publishes articles on political theory from a wide range of philosophical, ideological and methodological perspectives. Articles address contemporary and historical political thought, normative and cultural theory, the history of ideas, and critical assessments of current work. The journal encourages essays that address pressing political and ethical issues or events.
