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 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.
