Abstract

Drawing from an ethnographic study of the everyday practices of children with disability labels and a participatory action research project with Latino/a high school students and their teacher, we describe the process of inviting children to participate in selecting a pseudonym and generating descriptions of their identity(ies). We highlight how a relational ethic might be generated within this process and call for reflexivity when representing others' identity(ies) and ways of being.
