UM Education Professor Named to Editorial Board of Prestigious National Publication

December 23, 2015

MISSOULA – Adrea Lawrence, associate professor in the University of Montana’s Department of Curriculum and Instruction in the Phyllis J. Washington College of Education and Human Sciences, has been appointed to the editorial board of a prominent national education publication, History of Education Quarterly. She will hold this position for a three-year term beginning January 2016.

History of Education Quarterly is the premier scholarly journal focused on the history of education in the U.S. It serves as the primary publication of the History of Education Society, an international scholar society that aims to promote and improve the teaching of the history of education in colleges and universities, encourage scholarly research in the history of education, and facilitate the publication and dissemination of the results of that research.

“It is such an honor to serve on the History of Education Quarterly’s editorial board,” Lawrence said. “The new editorial staff and board is focused on reconsidering how education writ large is framed and how it works to create cultures and societies.”

In her role as a board member for History of Education Quarterly, Lawrence will be part of a key team responsible for determining the latest pertinent trends and topics in the field of education history. She also will be responsible for reviewing and selecting various manuscripts and articles presented to the publication.

Lawrence has been involved with the History of Education Society since 2005. In that time, her contributions have included presenting at multiple conferences, offering commentaries and being part of a special issue on the history of American Indian education, which came out in fall 2014.
