About Brent Elder, Ph.D.

Dr. Elder’s research focuses on the development of sustainable inclusive education practices in under-resourced schools. Specifically, his work utilizes a critical disability studies lens to examine the intersections of disability, poverty, and education. During the 2015-16 academic year, he conducted his doctoral research in Kenya as a Fulbright scholar. Dr. Elder has published in the Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, Disability & Society, International Journal of Whole Schooling, International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education, School-University Partnerships, International Journal of Inclusive Education, Disability and the Global South, Disability Studies Quarterly, Societies without Borders, and the Journal of International Special Needs Education. In the Fall, he will continue his work as a professor-in-residence at Bowe Elementary School in Glassboro and teach a PhD course on topics related to disability studies. When not teaching, he enjoys traveling, live music, and spending time with family.
