James Marten, Journal of the History of Childhood and Youth

The Journal of the History of Childhood and Youth named Marquette University professor James Marten as its new editor last year. The journal is the official publication of the Society for the History of Childhood and Youth (SHCY). Chair of the History Department at Marquette and a founding member of the association, he will take over from a group of editors from the Five Colleges Editorial Collective. Marten joined us to talk about his new role and the challenges facing journals and associations.
