Curriculum Vitae



Elizabeth Ellcessor works at the intersection of cultural, media, and disability studies. Her research and teaching interests include media history, access, and literacy, as well as social media, participatory culture, celebrity and performance of the self, media convergence, the construction of the public, and representations of dis/ability. She is currently working on a book manuscript, Restricted Access, which details the phenomenon of digital media accessibility for people with disabilities. By examining media from this marginalized perspective, it becomes possible to see how varied experiences of media access can be, and how this variation might complicate traditional categories of media and cultural studies research. She is also an affiliate faculty member in the department of Gender and Women's Studies and the Cultural Studies program.
