Dr. Octavian Robinson

Our faculty continue to do great things! On our website, Academic Affairs student intern Amelia Oliver profiles Dr. Octavian Robinson, ’02 & G-’04, a leader in the new field of “crip linguistics,” the study of ableist systems and their attitudes toward language. He, along with Dr. Erin Moriarty Harrelson and the late Dr. Jonathan Henner, E-’05, has a book coming out soon. Robinson and Moriarty Harrelson are both with the Deaf Studies program in the School of Arts and Humanities.
