Abstract: So many people experience inequity and stigma throughout their lifetime. Yet, it can be difficult to understand these perspectives when they do not mirror our own. Perspective-taking can be even more difficult when it’s unclear where stigma and inequity originate. During this colloquium, Dr. Kristina M. Scharp discusses how the communicative processes of remaking, resistance, and resilience can help us better understand inequity and stigma.
