Challenging Stuttering Stereotypes
Sunday, November 22 @ 12:30 to 2:30 pm ET 

November's community event is an invitation to discuss different ways of viewing stuttering and other themes from the book Stammering Pride and Prejudice: Difference not Defect. “We challenge the stereotype that stuttering is inherently negative, instead positioning it as a different, valuable and respected way of speaking,” say editors Patrick Campbell, Christopher Constantino and Sam Simpson. Combining personal narrative, art, and disability theory, the book documents how society has historically disabled people who stutter and the diverse ways in which people have created novel and exciting understandings of their speech.

The authors below will read portions of their chapters and invite discussion.

Erin Schick - Honest speech
Nina G - Transforming the stuttering iceberg
Chris Constantino - Stutter naked
Emma Alpern - Why Stutter more?
Joshua St. Pierre - Misfits in meaning
Patrick Campbell - People with stigma
Kristel Kubart - It’s complicated: CP & Stuttering
Sam Simpson - Looking Back, Looking Forward
