ASU Prof Earns Hispanic Education Fellowship
December 03, 2012
Faculty fellows arrive two days prior to the national conference to participate in organized workshops designed to promote Hispanic persistence and advancement in academics. Conference faculty fellows also make presentations during the annual meeting, which will explore the 2013 theme “Toward a Latino Attainment Agenda: Shaping Our Own Destiny.”
An assistant professor of history, Klingemann joined the ASU faculty in 2007 with academic specializations in the United States-Mexico border, modern Mexico and Latin American history. He has conducted research on 20th-century social movements, the Villismo movement in northern Mexico and the Mexican Revolution of 1910 with an emphasis in Chihuahua, Coahuila and Durango.
Fellowships are awarded to up-and-coming faculty members at institutions of higher education nationwide. The highly competitive fellowship program funds the conference registration fees and lodging during the convention.
Klingemann holds both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in history from Sul Ross State University and his doctorate in history from the University of Arizona. While at the University of Arizona, he was awarded a Fulbright-García Robles Fellowship for Mexico for 2006-07 as well as a Tinker Fellowship for Graduate Research in Latin America for 2005.
Additionally, Klingemann has been a fellow of National Summer Institute on Promoting Multicultural Excellence in the Academy at the University of Denver as well as a graduate school minority fellow and a Social and Behavioral Sciences Research Institute fellow, both at the University of Arizona.
