Prudence L. Carter, dean and professor of the Graduate School of Education at UC Berkeley, and national expert on inequality in education, will present the American Educational Research Association's (AERA) 2019 Brown Lecture in Education Research.
Carters research focuses on factors that shape and reduce economic, social, and cultural inequalities among social groups in schools and society. A sociologist, she examines academic and mobility differences influenced by the dynamics of race, ethnicity, poverty, class, and gender in the U.S. and global society. She is an AERA Fellow and an elected member of the National Academy of Education.
The Brown Lecture, now in its 16th year, was inaugurated by AERA in 2004 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education decision, in which the U.S. Supreme Court took scientific research into account in issuing its landmark ruling.
