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. She is at work on a book titled Crip Spacetime, which reports findings from that study and proposes a new way of thinking about access in higher education. 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). Her writing also appears in Hypatia, Profession, Disability Studies Quarterly, the Review of Disability Studies, Composition Studies, enculturation, College Composition and Communication, Bitch: Feminist Response to Pop Culture and Ms. magazine. In August 2017, Price was inducted into the Susan M. Daniels Disability Mentoring Hall of Fame. She is an avid knitter, inline skater, and is often accompanied by her dog Ivy.
