14th Annual AERA Brown Lecture


JUST ADDED: Discussion Forum

Artiles' talk will be immediately followed by a moderated discussion with two policy experts and audience members. This discussion forum will be moderated by Christina Samuels (Education Week), and will feature thoughtful commentary from Jake Cornett (U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor & Pensions) and Liz King (The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights). 


Lecture: "Re-envisioning Equity Research: Disability Identification Disparities as a Case in Point" 
This lecture examines longstanding challenges and risks associated with conducting and using research on complex equity problems. Alfredo J. Artiles (Arizona State University) examines these issues in the context of research on disability disparities that are historically linked to demographic markers such as race, social class, and gender. This is an intricate equity problem since disability identification is associated with academic achievement gaps, increased school dropouts, inequities in college access, differential job market opportunities, and reduced civic engagement. Artiles critiques traditional studies on disability disparities and outlines three guidelines for the next generation of equity research: accounting for history in the production of knowledge, addressing how marginalized groups are depicted in studies, and investigating the multiple dimensions of identity differences.
