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).
