Current Research and other activities
Loucky's current interests include international migration, borderlands, child well-being and human rights. His involvement in various research projects reflects these diverse concerns.In 1999, Loucky received a Fulbright grant to conduct research and teach at the National University of Salta (UNSa) in northwest Argentina. While there, he examined changes in Argentinean communities experiencing international migration, and also taught courses on global studies and worked with UNSa faculty to enhance graduate training in applied anthropology.From 1996 to 2001, he has directed a trinational research grant focusing on transboundary envrionmental policy, involving faculty mobility between WWU, Simon Fraser University and El Colegio de la Frontera Norte in Mexico. This project is supported by the United States Information Agency and the University Affiliations Program. He also directs a team-research project to assess the state of international education at WWU. This is supported by the Association of International Educational Administrators.
In addition to his research and teaching activities, Loucky advises on applied anthropology, education/secondary education, interdisciplinary child development, international studies (minor) and Latin American studies (minor).
