Three questions that have directed much of my recent work are: What are the cultural logics, legal forms, and technological infrastructures that guide information management practices? How are law and technology used to mediate access? How is accessibility being framed as a fundamental human right and critical pathway to social enfranchisement? At this time I am completing publication projects and conducting follow up research on two ethnographic projects. What ties both of these projects together is my commitment to understanding how people go about sharing socially-charged information/knowledge with one another.
