Stanford University

Alfredo J. Artiles is Lee L. Jacks Professor of Education at Stanford University. His scholarship examines 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, social class, gender and language advance or hinder educational opportunities for disparate groups of students.
