Thesis research grants awarded to Hansen and Smalkoski

Sarah Hansen.jpgSarah Hansen and Kari Smalkoski, doctoral students in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction, have each been awarded Thesis Research Grant funds by the Graduate School. Grant funds help students cover expenses associated with their thesis research, such as domestic travel, fieldwork, postage, and photocopying.

Hansen's research (Bic Ngo and Thom Swiss, advisers) will explore the stories Indian-American participants at a community-based ethnic organization document about their everyday lives--stories that converse with, but also complicate, dominant discourses about what it means to be a South Asian youth in a global context.

Kari SmalkoskiSmalkoski's research (Bic Ngo and Tim Lensmire, adviser) examines the layers of multiplicity within the Hmong community by looking at the the ways in which Hmong masculinities and popular cultural practices impact males' non-school and school identities.
