PhD Candidate, Instructional Technology Fellow, Singer

I am a PhD candidate in English at the CUNY Graduate Center. I write about social justice issues in higher education. My dissertation examines the politics, and rhetoric of disability access in New York City colleges, going back to the first programs developed following WWII. I also give workshops on disability inclusion in writing classrooms.
