I was so thrilled to present my book chapter titled At the Intersection of Identity, Disability, and Power at Columbia University‘s 39th Winter Roundtable Conference in Psychology and Education hosted by Teachers College! It was a joy to be part of this virtual presentation and to share with the audience strategies to help educators avoid elusive pitfalls in discourse and interaction with students with disabilities. Individuals with disabilities remain vulnerable across educational and social settings and I drew from my own experience with disability to shed light on how to conduct empathetic interactions that reinforce the student’s self-determination, identities, and life-project. I was so thrilled there got to be 29 people in the audience who had great questions and comments! You can find a link to the program here and a link to my chapter here. The chapter was published by Information Age Publishing in 2020 as part of the volume Identity and Lifelong Learning in Higher Education.
