Scott Eacott is Director of the Office of Educational Leadership in the School of Education, the University of New South Wales; and adjunct professor of Educational Leadership in the Department of Educational Administration at the University of Saskatchewan. His scholarship sits at the intersections of organisational theory, sociology and educational administration and leadership. Scott is widely published, with his research interests and contributions falling into three main areas: i) relational approaches for studying educational organisations, ii) leadership preparation and development and iii) Bourdieusian theorizing in educational leadership. In the initial volume in the Educational Leadership Theory book series he follows up his previous book Educational Leadership Relationally (2015, Sense), to further articulates his relational approach and engage with existing critiques of it. Scott is on the editorial board of a number of leading educational leadership journals, including Journal of Educational Administration and History, International Journal of Leadership in Education, and International Journal of Educational Management. He is a Fellow of the Australian Council for Educational Leaders.
