Dr. Stephanie Rosen, Associate Librarian and Accessibility Specialist at the University of Michigan Library will lead a facilitated roundtable discussion on “Accessibility & Publishing, Scholarship, & Digital Media” over breakfast. This discussion will examine the issue of accessibility in the contexts of digital scholarship, publishing, and media and will center on the question of how our writing, public scholarship, or teaching might look different with a commitment to accessibility. The conversation will be informed by practical insights and critical approaches outlined in the following brief readings, which Dr. Rosen recommends participants read in advance:
