Disability-Related #4c13 Sessions: A Story in Tweets

Welcome to the archive of this year's (public) Conference on College Composition & Communication tweets that used the #4c13 and #dis hashtags. I also collected tweets from sessions related to disability, accessibility, and embodiment that didn't use the #dis hashtag.

  1. The order of these tweets is predominantly chronological: 
    1) pre-conference updates, 
    2) accessibility advice & comments, 
    3) Wednesday workshops, 
    4) full-text copies of conference presentations, and 
    5) conference sessions in order of how they occurred. 

    This is a fairly long text, so just keep clicking "Read next page" at the bottom. Enjoy!

  2. Pre-Conference Updates

  3. Initially, the #dis and #4c13 hashtags were ways to communicate how to share disability-related sessions and how to find quiet spaces in Vegas and in the hotel.

  4. Accessibility Advice & Comments

  5. Once participants started to arrive in Vegas, the #dis hashtag became a way to facilitate and share accessibility-related conversations.

    One way folks used the #dis hashtag was to provide advice for making presentations more accessible--by providing handouts/visuals, visiting the accessibility table, using the microphones provided in the room, etc.
  6. Another way Twitter was used was to comment on (and ask about) conference and Riviera Casino & Hotel accessibility.
