Champaign , USA
Presented by Dr. Teresa L. McCarty
Teresa L. McCarty, a world-renowned scholar on indigenous language planning, policy, education, and revitalization, will present the 2015 AERA Brown Lecture in Education Research. McCarty is a professor of education and anthropology at the University of California, Los Angeles and professor emerita at Arizona State University.
McCarty's lecture will examine hard-fought pathways toward educational justice forged by indigenous educators, parents, leaders, and allies; the larger colonial project in which those efforts are embedded; and the ways in which indigenous initiatives are braided with those of others. She will conclude by relating the ongoing challenges in fulfilling the promise of Brown—in particular, the simultaneous homogenizing and stratifying effects of current education policy—and what can be learned from diverse models of contemporary indigenous education practice.
