About Michael Domínguez, Ph.D.

Dr. Michael Domínguez is an Assistant Professor of Youth and Educational Studies in the Chicana/o Studies Department at San Diego State University. Previously a middle school teacher in North Las Vegas, NV, Dr. Domínguez’ research focuses on liberatory teacher education, the schooling experiences and literacies of Latinx/Chicanx youth, and the intersections of critical pedagogy, decolonial theory, and learning science. His current projects include program design to cultivate decolonizing dispositions and pedagogies among pre-service and practicing educators and developing collaborative school-community partnerships to support culturally sustaining growth and socio-political development for Latinx and historically marginalized youth, their families, and their teachers.
