Amelia Álvarez

Fundación Infancia y Aprendizaje is pleased to announce that Dr. Amelia Álvarez will become the new Editor-in-Chief of the journal Studies in Psychology (Estudios de Psicología) starting March 1st, 2024.

Dr. Álvarez earned her degree in Psychology in 1973 at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, and her Ph. D. at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid in 1996. She was a Professor at both the Universidad de Salamanca and Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, where she is now Professor Emerita.

Dr. Álvarez’s work has been mainly focused on the continuation and spread of cultural historical psychology. As Publisher and Editor, she has actively participated in the publication of Lev S. Vygotsky’s works in the Spanish language, as well as many of the Belorussian psychologist’s collaborators’ (Luria, Elkonin, Zhaporozhets, Galperin, Leontiev…). As a researcher, she has written articles and book chapters in the leading journals and book compilations dedicated to cultural historical psychology at large, and to Vygotskyan psychology in particular. Dr. Álvarez was also a founding member of the Society for Socio-Cultural Research (SSCR), and organized the SSCR’s First Conference in Madrid, 1992. In the year 2002, the SSCR merged with the International Society for Cultural Research and Activity Theory (ISCRAT) to constitute ISCAR, the International Society for Cultural-historical Activity Research, which continues to function to this day.

Founder and Secretary of Fundación Infancia y Aprendizaje (FIA), she has been the Editor in Chief of two of FIA’s most historic and far-reaching journals: the Journal for the Study of Development (Infancia y Aprendizaje), from 1978 to 1995, and Culture and Education (Cultura y Educación) (founded in 1989 as Comunicación, Lenguaje y Educación, CL&E -Communication, Language & Education-), from 1989 to 2008. She has also been in the Editorial Committee of internationally acclaimed journals such as Mind, Culture and Activity.

Dr. Álvarez’s lifelong dedication to the study of psychology and education, along with her inexhaustible editorial experience, ensure both the continuity and the growth of the journal in this period. Her strong emphasis on the importance of human sciences in the study and design of the present and the future conditions for humankind, and her always passionate defense of a psychologically healthy and nurturing cultural environment for children, will guide her tenure as Studies in Psychology’s Editor-in-Chief.

Dr. Álvarez’s work will build on the outstanding leadership of Dr. Ricardo Rosas, outgoing Editor-in-Chief of Studies in Psychology. We thank him for his excellent service to the journal over the last decade.
