Professor Elizabeth Ellcessor recently completed her dissertation, “Access Ability: Policies, Practices, and Representations of Disability Online." In this project, she examined web accessibility policies and conducted ethnographic research on a disability blogosphere in order to interrogate the affordances and constraints of digital media and the nature of media access more broadly. Her research and teaching interests include digital and social media, participatory culture, celebrity and performance of the self, the intersectional study of disability, television studies, the construction of the public, and cultural studies. Her work has appeared in Television and New Media and Cinema Journal.
