Elizabeth Guffey

Elizabeth Guffey works at the intersection of art, design and disability studies. Her book Designing Disability: Symbols, Space and Society (Bloomsbury) argues that designs like the International Symbol of Access or “wheelchair symbol” can alter the environment, making people more disabled or less, depending on the design’s planning and use. Guffey currently heads the MA program in Modern and Contemporary Art, Criticism, and Theory at the State University of New York, Purchase College.
