LSA Disability Special Interest Group
Hello! My name is Cassidy Henry and I am a current undergraduate senior at UCLA, about to enter a PhD in Linguistics at the University of Maryland. I am working to create a Disability SIG (Special Interest Group) within the Linguistic Society of America (LSA).
I initially had a longer and more elegant blurb here, but when fixing something on the google form, things went awry and erased it :( So, I will paraphrase the reasoning for developing the SIG.
A Disability SIG would serve as a venue for:
-- Disabled linguists to meet
-- Voicing concerns related to disability for members of our profession, and amplifying those voices by sharing those concerns with the LSA directly
-- Allies of the disabled community to learn what they can do to help eradicate academic ableism in our field
-- Allowing us to convene at the Annual Meeting to discuss these issues
You do not need to be disabled to join the SIG. Filling out this form indicates initial interest, and all those who fill out this form would be invited to give feedback on paperwork to officially form the SIG.
Any questions or comments can be sent to me directly at
Role at Institution
Are you currently a LSA Member?
I plan on joining soon
Would you be interested in leadership efforts within the SIG?
If you are not a current member, would the presence of a Disability SIG encourage you to consider LSA membership?
