Stephanie Rosen, Access Manifestos

The way we define and enact access—in the digital humanities, information science, or the cultural heritage fields—is inherently political. Access is already unevenly distributed, and our interventions to improve accessibility always prioritize some vectors of need while reinforcing some other requirements to participate. This tension has been theorized and practiced for decades—in disability activism, studies, and justice. This talk centers that lineage to develop ways of thinking about access as intentional, collaborative, multi-dimensional, and political. Along the way, it offers examples of access manifestos and the raw materials from which we might write our own, as we engage in this conference and in our everyday political work.
