Book Launch with Dr. Rebecca Campbell-Montalvo 4:00pm
Thursday, December 7th, 2023
Join us for the second event of two this fall on December 7th at 4PM in Gentry building 142:
- Book Launch: The Latinization of Indigenous Students with Affiliate Faculty Dr. Rebecca Campbell-Montalvo.
Light food will be served.
Dr. Campbell-Montalvo is a Visiting Assistant Research Professor in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction in the Neag School of Education at the University of Connecticut, where she leads NSF-funded research on broadening participation in STEM.
Based upon research in rural central Florida, The Latinization of Indigenous Students examines how schools perceive and process demographic information, including how those perceptions may erase Indigeneity and impact resource access. Based on multiyear fieldwork, Campbell-Montalvo argues that languages and racial identities of Indigenous Latinx students and families may be re-formed by schools, erasing Indigeneity. However, programs such as the federally funded Migrant Education Program can foster equitable access by encouraging pedagogies that position teachers as cultural insiders or learners. Anchored by pertinent anthropological theories, this work advances our ability to name and explain pedagogical phenomena and their role in rectifying or reproducing colonialism among marginalized and minoritized groups.
The event is sponsored by El Instituto, the Office of the Dean of Students, the Dept of Curriculum and Instruction, and the Department of Educational Leadership in the Neag School of Education. Dr. Campbell-Montalvo will offer a synopsis of her book, and Dr. Michele Back will lead the audience Q&A. A reception and a free raffle to win two book copies follow. This event is open to the public.
