272. Is "Access" the New "Diversity"? Rethinking Access across the Profession

Session Description:

At least since 1999, when Charles Moran called access "the A-word" in technology studies, access has been a touchstone in scholarly conversations. Yet there is still a general tendency to regard access as a vague good thing; here we trouble that idea. In this roundtable, three scholars in rhetoric and composition explore access as it plays out through technology, scholarly publishing, race, disability, and multimodal learning.
