Project MALES is pleased to highlight Carlos Martínez-Cano (University of Pennsylvania), one of our recipients for the inaugural Graduate Scholars Program (PM-GSP). He will be matched with Dr. Juan Carrillo as his Faculty and Research Affiliate mentor and receive a $500 dissertation award.
He is a doctoral candidate in the Department of Education, Culture, & Society at the University of Pennsylvania. His dissertation examines the technology related learning practices of Mexican-origin middle school boys living in the new Latino diaspora. His work is interdisciplinary as it contributes to scholarship in anthropology, education and Latina/o studies, and pushes our thinking about how we can use digital literacy to close the achievement gap.
