Publishing NOW: Jonathan Wallace

Jonathan Wallace
Princeton University and the Brookings Institution
February 4, 2019, 4 pm

Jonathan Wallace is managing editor of the Future of Children journal, a collaboration of the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton University and the Brookings Institution that reviews research about children and presents it in language accessible to a nonacademic audience. As a freelance editor, he helps some of the nation’s leading scholarly societies, think tanks, and foundations communicate their findings to policy makers, the media, and the public. He has also been the editor and writing consultant for faculty at the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education, Nation and World editor at the News and Observer in Raleigh, NC, assistant director of a university writing center, and, once upon a time, a historian of the Soviet Union. He hates jargon; likes cats, cycling, cooking, and fishing; and isn’t nearly as grumpy as he looks.
