"Sometimes You Feel Invisible": Performing Queer/Disabled in the University Classroom
Miller, Ryan A.
Educational Forum, v79 n4 p377-393 2015
This qualitative study explored the classroom experiences of 25 LGBTQ students with disabilities at a research-intensive university. Drawing on critical/postmodern epistemologies and concepts from both queer theory and disability studies, this article details students' experiences in the university classroom related to their multiple, intersecting social identities. Students in the study described processes of disclosing identities in classes, managing perceptions of professors and peers, and experiencing and processing microaggressions.
