Anthony L. Brown is an associate professor of curriculum and instruction in social studies education at the University of Texas at Austin. He is also an affiliated faculty in the areas of cultural studies in education, the John Warfield Center of African and African American Studies, and the Department of African and African Diaspora Studies. His research agenda falls into two interconnected strands of research, related broadly to the education of African Americans. His first strand of research examines how educational stakeholders make sense of and respond to the educational needs of African American male students. The second strand examines how school curricula portray the historical experiences of African Americans in official school knowledge (such as standards and textbooks) and within popular discourse. He has been published in Teachers College Record, Harvard Educational Review, and the Journal of Educational Policy.
