Patricia K. Kubow is Director of the Center for Social Studies and International Education (CSSIE) at Indiana University. She is also Professor in the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies, and the Department of Curriculum and Instruction, in the School of Education at Indiana University-Bloomington. She received her Ph.D. in Comparative and International Development Education in the Educational Policy and Administration Department at the University of Minnesota in 1996. An expert in the fields of comparative and international education and international citizenship education, Kubow has conducted comparative studies of democracy, citizen identity, and education in sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East, and worldwide. Her global scholarship focuses on democratic education, cultural and indigenous knowledge, and cross-cultural pedagogies applied to teacher education, curriculum development, and educational policy.

Professor Kubow's co-authored text, Comparative Education: Exploring Issues in International Context, now in second edition, is used in schools of education across the U.S. and has been adopted at universities in more than 15 countries, as well as translated into Korean. Her articles are published in Comparative Education Review, Education and Society, Educational Policy, and Higher Education in Europe, among others. She has received national recognition for her international work from the President of the United States/The White House and the U.S. Agency for International Development, as well as awards for her scholarship from the American Educational Research Association and the Association for Teacher Educators. Kubow has served as a Visiting Research Professor at the University of the Western Cape in South Africa. She continues her work in a township community examining the perspectives of Xhosa educators and students in relation to their constructions of democracy and the role of formal schooling in educating for democratic citizenship. Her interest in culturally-relevant democracy also has led to research on educational reform for the knowledge economy in Jordan. Professor Kubow is Co-Chair of the Teaching Comparative Education special interest group of the North American Comparative and International Education Society. She is recent past Chair of the Awards Committee of CIES, and past member of the Gail Kelly and Joyce Cain award committees.
