Encounters on Education

Encounters on Education / Encuentros sobre educación / Rencontres sur l'éducation is the peer-reviewed, thematic, and open journal of the Theory and History of Education International Research (THEIR) Group. It is housed in and published by the Faculty of Education, Queen’s University, and releases one issue per year. The journal is trilingual and accepts contributions in English, Spanish, and French.

It began publication in the fall of 2000 as both a printed and an open access online journal, and since 2011 has been published exclusively in electronic form. Rosa Bruno-Jofré (Queen’s University) and Gonzalo Jover (Universidad Complutense de Madrid) are its founding co-Editors.

From the start, Encounters aimed to generate a critical dialogue on history and educational theory among educational researchers from Canada, Spain, and Latin American in light of the globalizing context of education. The scope has been enlarged beyond those boundaries, in terms of contributions, and the journal encourages an interdisciplinary dialogue having as center theory and history of education.

The journal is indexed in the following databases:
