Maggie Beneke, Ph.D.

2018 Virtual Conference Presenter

Dr. Maggie Beneke is an assistant professor at the University of Washington. Her research focuses on re-thinking inclusive, equitable education for children and families from historically marginalized backgrounds. Her scholarly work is premised on a view of inclusive education as a social movement in response to the exclusion of children viewed as different (e.g., children with disabilities, children of color) in comparison to an (often) unspoken status quo (e.g., able-bodied, White). Through critical analysis of the local processes and consequences of identity construction (e.g., ability, race, gender), she aims to highlight and support early childhood practitioners’ inclusive practices, as well as identify and transform deficit discourses surrounding young children’s identities and competencies.
