George has held fellowships from the Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts (24-month Chester Dale), the Social Science Research Council (IDRF), the Society of Architectural Historians (De Montêquin), and the Mexico-U.S. Fulbright Commission (Fulbright-García Robles).  A graduate of Swarthmore College and the University of California, Santa Barbara (Ph.D. 2011), he teaches courses on Mexican and Chicano art and media as well as critical theory.
