Cristina Lacomba to start one-year postdoctoral fellowship at Harvard School of Education

Congratulations to Sociology PhD Cristina Lacomba, who will begin a postdoctoral fellowship with Professor Roberto Gonzales at the Harvard Graduate School of Education this Fall. Dr. Lacomba and Dr. Gonzales are seeking to understand how the American immigration policy known as DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) affects the everyday lives of eligible young people. Dr. Lacomba’s primary responsibility will be to manage and analyze the National UnDACAmented Research Project (NURP) interview-based qualitative data set. In her position, she will be expected to lead particular strands of inquiry and to publish this work with others on the research team.

 

Congratulations, Cristina, and good luck with this important endeavor!

Dan Davis receives Kauffman Foundation Dissertation Fellowship

Grad student Dan Davis was informed that he has received a highly competitive dissertation fellowship from the Kauffman Foundation in support of his research on student technology incubators on university campuses.

This follows the great news that Dan (and his co-author Professor Amy Binder) have had two papers accepted, one on “Career Funneling” at elite universities (to appear in Sociology of Education, Nick Bloom also a co-author) and one called “Selling Students” about corporate partnership programs on college campuses (to appear in a special issue about higher education in Research in the Sociology of Organizations). All of this work examines in various ways the increasing corporatization of higher education. Congrats Dan.
