SmalkoskiK.JPGFamily Social Science doctoral student Kari Smalkoski was awarded a graduate fellowship for Spring 2012 with the Institute for Advanced Study. While in residence at IAS, Smalkoski will have regular opportunities to converse with faculty and graduate fellows throughout the University of Minnesota and beyond to discuss her dissertation project, "Performing Masculinities: The Impact of Cultural Practices, Racialization and Space on Hmong Male Youth and their Families." She will be mentored by Professor Diyah Larasati who will engage with Smalkoski in her dissertation questions that are located in larger theoretical conversations about Hmong male youths' embodied cultural practices connected to and influenced by their families, neighborhoods and peers.
