June 22, 2015

UW-Madison’s Maisha Winn was appointed co-editor for the 2017 edition of “Review of Research in Education,” the annual American Educational Research Association (AERA) journal that focuses on a chosen topic each year.

The topic for the 2017 volume will be, “Disrupting Inequality through Education Research.”

Winn is the Susan J. Cellmer Chair in English Education and a professor of language and literacies with the School of Education’s No. 1-ranked Department of Curriculum and Instruction. She will be co-editing the publication with Mariana Souto-Manning, an associate professor and program coordinator of the Early Childhood Education Program at Teachers College, Columbia University.

The news was made public earlier this month in an AERA news release, which reported that 2015 AERA President Joyce King appointed the editors, concluding a process that began in the summer of 2014 with a call for nominations, followed by candidate applications and Publications Committee deliberations.

“I am very pleased to have Maisha Winn and Mariana Souto-Manning on board as coeditors of the 2017 volume of RRE,” Executive Director Felice J. Levine said in the news release. “The combination of these excellent scholars and a timely topic should yield a significant work that contributes to knowledge and stimulates future inquiry. An open call will only add to that promise.”
