Dr. Teresa L. McCarty, George Kneller Chair in Education and Anthropology at UCLA Ed & IS, was selected by AERA to deliver the Brown Lecture on October 22, 2015 in Washington, DC. She was chosen based on her extensive work on language education policy, Indigenous education, youth language and literacy learning, and ethnographic studies of education. The Brown Lecture was established in 2004 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education decision and McCarty’s lecture was the first to focus on Indigenous education and language. Dr. McCarty is the Alice Wiley Snell Professor Emerita of Education Policy Studies, and former co-director of the Center for Indian Education at Arizona State University. From 1989 to 2004 at the University of Arizona, she served as professor of Language Reading and Culture, department and interim dean within the College of Education, and co-director of the American Indian Language Development Institute. While at SAR, Dr. McCarty continued her research on Reclaiming the “Cultural Language”- Youth and Indigenous Language Continuance.
