Conference

The Joys and Concerns of Bi-Racial and Multi-Ethnic Identities

Author
  • Ron Jackson (Iowa State University)

Abstract

What are the special challenges and opportunities for people who come from family backgrounds representing more than one ethnicity? How do people cope with multiple levels of oppression? How do people manage a sense of belonging to both a privileged group and a disenfranchised group? How do people choose to name themselves and identify themselves to individuals and institutions? What impact does identification have on access to resources? The presenters will briefly present stages of identity development, then invite participants to share their answers to the above questions. This is an opportunity for learning and mutual support.
