The Intersection of Identity Conversations in the Disabled Community: From Person-First to Identity-First Language

3:00 PM | Virtual – Webinar

Target Audience: ALL

Conversation about identity-first language (“I am a disabled person”) versus person-first language (“I am a person who is disabled”) have long had implications for how society views disability as a lived experience. The purpose of the dialogue is to hear opinions on the language used when talking about identity within the Vanderbilt community regarding dis/abilities and race.

“This town hall discussion will bring an inclusive lens to the Student Access team as we cultivate and provide more tools and resources for the disability community at Vanderbilt,” said Jamie Bojarski, director of Student Access, who will moderate the discussion along with Franklin Ellis, director of the Provost’s Office for Inclusive Excellence.

The virtual event will be captioned using Otter, an AI technology. Those who need additional accommodations for the event should contact Student Access.

Vanderbilt is a member institution of the Association on Higher Education and Disability, which recently released a position statement about the use of identity-first language. Vanderbilt’s Student Access and OIE teams agree that “language is a powerful way to demonstrate values,” and input from the disability community is critical to guide language and support coming from these offices.

Description of the Book: Between the World and Me is a 2015 nonfiction book written by American author Ta-Nehisi Coates and published by Spiegel & Grau. It is written as a letter to the author’s teenage son about the feelings, symbolism, and realities associated with being Black in the United States. Coates recapitulates American history and explains to his son the “racist violence that has been woven into American culture.” Coates draws from an abridged, autobiographical account of his youth in Baltimore, detailing the ways in which institutions like the school, the police, and even “the streets” discipline, endanger, and threaten to disembody black men and women. The work takes structural and thematic inspiration from James Baldwin’s 1963 epistolary book The Fire Next Time. Unlike Baldwin, Coates sees white supremacy as an indestructible force, one that Black Americans will never evade or erase, but will always struggle against.
