Master Lectures

Margarita Azmitia, Emerging adults’ understanding of their intersecting identities: Theoretical, developmental, and methodological issues

Margarita Azmitia, an immigrant from Guatemala, is a professor of developmental psychology at the University of California at Santa Cruz and serves as the UCSC coordinator of the UC Consortium on Adolescence Science and as a member-at-large on the leadership of SRCD’s Latino Caucus. Her mixed-methods, interdisciplinary research program focuses on the role of close relationships, identity intersectionalities (gender, sexuality, ethnicity/race, and social class), and lived experiences of prejudice and discrimination in adolescents and emerging adults’ school transitions, academic and career trajectories, and well-being.


Gail Ferguson, The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly Of Cultural Globalization For 21st Century Emerging Adults (And What Developmental Science Can Do About It)

Dr. Gail M. Ferguson is currently a faculty member in the Department of Human Development and Family Studies at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and will be transitioning to the Institute of Child Development at the University of Minnesota for Fall, 2019. Dr. Ferguson’s research focuses on modern forms of cultural transmission among adolescents and emerging adults facilitated by 21st Century globalization (e.g., media, information and communication technologies, consumer goods, and migration). Among other interests, she has pioneered theory, research, and intervention programming on “remote acculturation” a modern form of acculturation among non-migrants exposed to distant cultures via globalization (e.g., the “Americanization” of youth in the Global South); and more recently, “remote enculturation”, a modern form of enculturation among youth living outside of the country of their family’s heritage who connect to that culture indirectly via globalization (e.g., 2nd generation immigrant youth; international adoptees). A major aim of Dr. Ferguson’s research is to identify and target risk and protective factors in prevention programs that promote the positive development of youth and families in and from the globalizing Majority World (i.e., developing countries).
