The Longmore Institute on Disability
Emily Beitiks (Asst. Director of the Longmore Institute)
We shape our tools and our tools shape us. This lecture delves into the interactions between disability, culture, and technology by exploring one blind scientist and inventor's journey. Interweaving evidence, anecdote, and autobiography, Dr. Miele will make a case for broadening our thinking about the meaning of accessibility and how we achieve it.
