Alfredo J. Artiles is the Ryan C. Harris Professor of Special Education and Dean of the Graduate College at Arizona State University. His interdisciplinary scholarship examines educational opportunities and inequities related to disability intersections with race, language, gender and social class. Dr. Artiles’ scholarship has brought attention to the intersection of historical, spatial and cultural influences in the production of racial and linguistic disparities in special education across school districts, cities, states, and nations. Of significance, he has documented the lack of systematic attention to race, language and culture in special education research.
Dr. Artiles directs the Equity Alliance and was elected Vice President of AERA (2009-2011). He is an AERA Fellow, a former Spencer Foundation/ National Academy of Education Postdoctoral Fellow and was a Resident Fellow at Stanford University’s Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences.
