Since its origins in 2000, Encounters has had a transnational character and in line with its history, publishes papers either in Spanish, English, or French and welcomes contributions from scholars working in Spain and Latin America. Encounters began in 2000 as a journal that attempted to generate a dialogue among educational researchers from Canada, Spain and Latin America in light of internationalization and economic globalization. Rosa Bruno-Jofré (Queen’s University) and Gonzalo Jover Olmeda (Universidad Complutense de Madrid) were co-founding editors. Until 2011, the journal was co-sponsored by the Faculty of Education at Queen’s University and the Department of Theory and History of Education, Faculty of Education, Universidad Complutense de Madrid. Since 2011, it has been solely sponsored by the Faculty of Education at Queen’s University, where it has been located since its origins, and is the journal of the interdisciplinary research group: Theory and History of Education International Research Group.
