Meet Álvaro José Corral, 2019 Fund for Latino Scholarship Recipient

Álvaro José Corral received his Ph.D. in Government from the University of Texas at Austin. His research is in the areas of Latinx Politics and Race and Ethnicity in American Politics, with a focus on the public opinion and voting behavior of Latinxs as well as immigration policy. Between 2017 and 2019 Álvaro was a Consortium for Faculty Diversity Postdoctoral Fellow and beginning in the fall of 2019 will join the Department of Political Science at The College of Wooster at the rank of Assistant Professor. His book project, an extension of his dissertation, explores the relationship between generational status and civic institutions as a new way to understand the political integration process of Latinx immigrants and their U.S.-born family members. He is also a co-Principal Investigator for the Immigrant Worker Survey Project, a collaborative project across four liberal arts colleges that collected over 300 in-depth interviews with Latinx migrants in Ohio in partnership with a community-based organization. He plans to use funds from the Latino Scholarship award to conduct focus group interviews with Latinx participants for his book project.
