About Jeremiah P Spence

Jeremiah P. Spence, born in 1978 in Houston, Texas to Curtis Spence and Debra Kuik was the oldest grandson to Mary Elizabeth Corolla Spence Gross. As a child and teenager Jeremiah grew up visiting hundreds of Sicilian relatives in Houston and Bryan, and gathering their stories. Jeremiah was fortunate to encounter other cousins researching the past of the enourmous family, including: Weldon M. Scardino, Gerard Scardino, Robert Lowry, J.L. Scardino, Andy Scardino. Another early find was the vertical file on the Scardino family at the Houston Public Library started by Maud Muller Scardino, wife of Peter H. Scardino. Jeremiah has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Latin American and Brazilian Studies from the University of Texas at Austin, a Masters of Arts degree in Communication Theory from the University of Texas at Austin and Doctor of Philosophy in Communication and Media Studies from the University of Texas at Austin. Additionally, Jeremiah has studied and researched at the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico in Mexico, Fundacao Getulio Vargas in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Universidade Federal da Bahia in Salvador, Brazil, and the Universidade de Sao Paulo in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Jeremiah is co-editor and co-author of the book: Inequity in the Technopolis: Race, Class, Gender, and the Digital Divide in Austin - edited by Joseph Straubhaar, Jeremiah Spence, Zeynep Tufekci, and Roberta G. Lentz - published at the University of Texas Press in 2012.show more
