New Ways to Talk about Disability
March 30 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AMFree
People often talk about disability in outdated ways because they have never had to question it. Such ableist language, however, is rooted in the ongoing trauma experienced by many people with disabilities. In fact, our outdated language grew out of what are called the “pity” and “medical” disability models or frames. This workshop aims to give us a safe space to reflect on what such models did to misshape our ideas about disability and to offer us new models. We will learn from disability activists about new ways to talk that centers disability as a natural part of the human experience.
