Culturally Healthy

March 24, 2015 by Bill Ivey

Another in my series of blogs based on and inspired by my experience at the Teaching and Learning Conference 2015.

 

Let’s take an imaginary person. We’ll call him James. James, who has a name that doesn’t particularly stand out, is white. He is also heterosexual, and identifies as the same gender with which he was identified at birth. He grew up in, and still belongs to, the middle class. He’s not too young but not too old. He is not disabled, either physically or with any of the invisible disabilities. He’s reasonably good-looking.
