Prof. Artiles’ interdisciplinary scholarship examines paradoxes produced by policies that address equity issues. For instance, he studies and has published extensively on the dual nature of disability as an object of protection and a tool of stratification. He aims to understand how responses to disability intersections with race, language, gender and social class advance or hinder educational opportunities for disparate groups of children and youth. He received mentoring awards from The Spencer Foundation, AERA, and Arizona State University.
