Margaret Price is at work on a mixed-methods investigation, the Disabled Faculty Study, which combines survey and interview data to learn more about the experiences of disabled faculty in higher education. Her forthcoming book Crip Spacetime, drawing on findings from this study, is under contract with Duke University Press. Price’s first book, Mad at School: Rhetorics of Mental Disability and Academic Life (University of Michigan Press), won the Outstanding Book Award from the Conference on College Composition & Communication (CCCC). Price is co-PI of the Transformative Access Project and received a 2020 Fulbright Research Award. She is an avid knitter and inline skater, and is usually accompanied by her dog Ivy.
