Early Career Fellowship Awarded to Danny C. Martinez May 2014
Danny C. Martinez, assistant professor of education, has been
selected to be a 2014 Concha Delgado Gaitan Presidential Fellow
by the Council on Anthropology and Education. This early career
fellowship is intended to support professional development and
mentoring in the field of educational anthropology.
Only five fellowships are awarded each year, which pairs up early
career scholars with senior scholars and comes with a $500 travel
award to cover the cost of presenting at the annual meeting of
the American Anthropological Association.
The selection committee, which chose Martinez from 22
applications, noted the “great potential [of his] work on Black
and Latino youths’ linguistic repertoires and explorations of
research positionality and research tools.”
