Mapping Access

The “Mapping Access” project involves students and other members of the OSU community in a collaborative process of charting and reflecting on campus spaces. This project, still in its beginning stages, follows the Mapping Access model developed by Dr. Aimi Hamraie and the Critical Design Lab at Vanderbilt University.

Members of the Spring 2020 class in English 4591 (“Rhetorics of Illness and Disability”) collaborated to create an Access Guide for the 2020 Society for Disability Studies Conference at Ohio State. Although the conference moved online, this guide will serve as the starting point for OSU’s own Mapping Access Project.
