Graduate opps to study child inequality in Peru or Baltimore

Dear all,

I am looking for a motivated individual interested in pursuing a PhD in geography at the University of Maryland Baltimore County (ges.umbc.edu) with interests in one of the following two areas.
  1. Migration, children’s rights, and uneven development in Peru. Must be comfortable in Spanish.
  2. Social justice issues related to poverty and segregation in Baltimore, with particular interest in how housing and education inequality affect children.
Experience or interest in participatory youth mapping a plus.
