Membership status

Alfredo J. Artiles is Professor at Stanford University’s Graduate School of Education. His scholarship examines paradoxes of educational equity. He studies how protections provided by special education can unwittingly stratify educational opportunities for minoritized groups and is advancing cultural, historical and spatial representations of this problem. Current work traces equity consequences of the shifting meanings of “disability” and “inclusive education” across contexts and scales and develops opportunity structures in such milieus.   Dr. Artiles served on the White House Commission on Educational Excellence for Hispanics. He and his colleagues led the federally-funded National Center for Culturally Responsive Educational Systems and Region IX Equity Assistance Center. He was elected AERA Vice-President to lead its Social Context of Education Division and received mentoring awards from Spencer Foundation, AERA, and Arizona State University. Artiles is Fellow of AERA and the National Education Policy Center. He was resident fellow at CASBS and a Spencer Foundation/NAEd Postdoctoral Fellow. He received an Honorary Doctorate from the University of Göteborgs (Sweden) and is Honorary Professor, University of Birmingham (UK).   Artiles’ Wallace Lecture “Toward an interdisciplinary understanding of educational equity and difference: The case of the racialization of ability” received AERA’s Palmer O. Johnson Award. His paper “Objects of protection, enduring nodes of difference: Disability intersections with “other” differences, 1916 – 2016” (with Dorn & Bal) won the AERA Review of Research Award.  He edits the “Disability, Culture, & Equity” book series (Teachers College Press). Publications include: The 14th Brown Lecture - “Re-envisioning equity research: Disability identification disparities as a case in point” (Educational Researcher); At the intersection of language, learning and disability: Issues and opportunities in the education of bilingual children (with Castro) (Center for Applied Linguistics); SAGE Handbook on Inclusion and Diversity in Education (with Schuelka, Johnstone, & Thomas); Inclusive education: Examining equity on five continents (with Kozleski & Waitoller) (Harvard Education Press).
