College of Education doctoral student Daniel Ricardo Aguilar, Jr. first scholarly publication
Congratulations to College of Education doctoral student Daniel Ricardo Aguilar, Jr. for his first scholarly publication. Mr. Aguilar's chapter "Tattoos of a Mexican-U.S. Border Region: Liberating Hidden Curriculum as Public Pedagogy" was published in the peer reviewed, edited book titled Liminal Spaces and Call for Praxis(ing) (2013), a Volume in the Curriculum and Pedagogy book series. Aguilar's chapter explores the ways in which tattoos can be seen to function as a hidden curriculum and public pedagogy of "culture jamming" that resists hegemonic messages about race, ethnicity, social class, and language as they manifest themselves both inside and outside the school curriculum in the Lower Rio Grande Valley. Mr. Aguilar is a doctoral student in Curriculum and Instruction specializing in Educational Technology.
