We are pleased to announce that The Good Society will be moving to a new home at the University of Minnesota, where it will be housed in the Dean’s Office of the College of Education and Human Development (CEHD). As of the first issue of 2017 the editorship will pass to Dr. Trygve Throntveit, Dean’s Fellow for Civic Studies at CEHD.
Dr. Throntveit received his PhD in History from Harvard University in 2008, and has published widely in the fields of intellectual history, the history of American philosophy, American political and diplomatic history, and international affairs. His first book, William James and the Quest for an Ethical Republic (Palgrave Macmillan, 2014), examined the ethical and moral origins, implications, and historical consequences of Jamesian pragmatism. His second book, Power without Victory: Woodrow Wilson and the American Internationalist Experiment (Chicago, in production), reinterprets the origins, content, and consequences of Woodrow Wilson’s domestic and foreign policies, including his plans for US participation in a League of Nations designed to reflect the principles of a pragmatist political ethics.
