About the Event
With 2014 and 2015 marking major anniversaries of landmark moments in the American struggle for equality—the 60th anniversary of Brown, the 50th anniversary of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, the sesquicentennial of the 13th Amendment, and the 50th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act of 1965—Anderson’s address examines how the constitutional framing of the equality of political power in the Reconstruction era casts a long shadow over American social justice today and continues to shape the pursuit of all forms of equality—including the current controversy over immigration and voter identification laws.

About the Speaker
James D. Anderson (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign), noted expert on American education history and desegregation, has been selected to present the 2014 Brown Lecture on October 23. Learn more

Abstract
In 2014 and 2015, our nation commemorates several landmark moments in its long, unfinished struggle for political and education equality for all. This year, we observe with a mix of gratitude and disquiet the 60th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education and the 50th anniversary of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Next year marks the sesquicentennial of the 13th Amendment, abolishing slavery, and the 50th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Read more

About the Annual Meeting

The AERA Annual Meeting is the largest gathering of scholars in the field of education research. It is a showcase for ground-breaking, innovative studies in a diverse array of areas -- from early education through higher education, from digital learning to second language literacy. It is where to encounter ideas and data that will shape tomorrow's education practices and policies, and where to connect with leading thinkers from the U.S. and around the world. 

2015 Annual Meeting Theme

The 2015 Annual Meeting theme is intended to focus our attention on justice—locally as well as globally—in a spirit of mutually respectful collaborative engagement with our disciplines and modes of inquiry in the context of the world around us. The aim is to make room for democratized knowledge and knowledge production in which the experiences of all people are shaped by principles and practices of justice. When we do so, our scholarly interests can align more closely with the interests of justice for those who have been and are educationally marginalized, dispossessed, and excluded. Read more
