Cleveland State University's College of Arts and Sciences is thrilled to announce the upcoming editorial team for Early Modern Women: An Interdisciplinary Journal. These three distinguished scholars are set to lead the way in shaping the future of this prestigious journal.

The newly appointed editorial team, consisting of Julie Eckerle, Professor of English Literature, University of Minnesota; Elizabeth Lehfeldt, Professor of History, Cleveland State University; and Martine van Elk, Professor of English, California State University, Long Beach, are no strangers to the world of academia. Their wealth of knowledge and extensive expertise will undoubtedly propel the journal to greater heights. The Executive Committee unanimously approved their proposal, which outlines an exciting vision for the future of the journal.

This visionary team plans to build upon the journal's current strengths, which include a commitment to interdisciplinary scholarship and a global perspective. Additionally, they aim to innovate by focusing on trans studies, asexuality studies, and race studies, ensuring that Early Modern Women remain at the forefront of contemporary research in these fields.

The transition to the new editorial team will be a seamless process, as they will work closely with the current editors, Bernadette Andrea, Julie Campbell, and Allyson Poska, over the next seven months. The official handover is scheduled for July 1, 2024, marking the beginning of a three-year term for the incoming team.

While there will be many opportunities to express gratitude to the outgoing editorial team in the coming months, the College of Arts and Sciences would like to extend its heartfelt appreciation to Bernadette, Julie, and Allyson for their unwavering dedication and innovative vision, which have steered the journal to success. Early Modern Women: An Interdisciplinary Journal has consistently been in the capable hands of its editorial teams, and the future promises to be just as bright.
