About Dr. Craig G. Centrie:

Dr. Craig Centrie is a professor in the School of Education. As a specialist in ethnographic data collection, he is the department's resident anthropologist. His work explores schools as a site for identity and culture construction. His most recent publication, Vietnamese Youth in an American High School, examines the identity formation of young Vietnamese refugees and their experiences in American schools. Dr. Centrie is an experienced world traveler and has lectured widely in Europe, Latin America, and Asia on education, art and human rights. In June 2005 he presented at the United Nations' Women's World Conference in Seoul, South Korea, on the experiences of Vietnamese female refugees and human rights. For over 25 years, Dr. Centrie has been an active member of Western New York's cultural community, co-founding el Museo Francisco Oller y Diego Rivera, the area's only visual arts organization dedicated to the visual art of Latinos. As a photographer and videographer, he inspires creativity in his students and encourages new ways to explore academic issues. His present research explores image-based research.
