José Cossa
What role do editors play in shaping academic fields?

My guest today is José Cossa, a Visiting Associate Professor at the American University in Cairo. In the fall of 2016, he will join the faculty of Peabody College at Vanderbilt University as a Senior Lecturer.

In today’s show, José talks about his archival research on three past editors of the Comparative Education Review. He is concerned about how the field of comparative education formed and the role editors play in setting boundaries. His work can be found in the book Crafting a Global Field (Springer, 2016).
