assistive technology

In this presentation, Rosemarie Garland-Thomson — Professor of Women's Studies and English at Emory University and fellow at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University — expands the idea of accessible technology to show how the way we make our shared world of buildings, technologies, public spaces, practices, laws, and attitudes builds a total environment which welcomes some people and keeps other people out. The talk presents the evolution of how accessible technologies in the broadest sense make our citizenry more inclusive and diverse.
