Welcome to Disability Writes by Andrew Lucchesi

About Andrew Lucchesi

I am a PhD student and college writing teacher, living and working in Harlem, New York. My research focuses on issues of diversity and inclusion in public colleges and universities. As a teacher, I specialize in using a mix of digital technology and responsive, student-centered practices to promote welcoming and engaging writing environments. As a researcher, I am investigating the history of disability access programs in public colleges and universities, from the earliest programs in the 1940s to the present.

I regularly present my research at national conventions, including the Modern Language Association, the Conference on College Compassion and Communication, and the Council of Writing Program Administrators. I also frequently give workshops for faculty across a range of disciplines on topics including writing-intensive assignment design, uses of digital technology in the classroom, and Universal Design for Learning.

Annotated Bibliography

This section contains semi-structured reviews of scholarly books and articles. It began as a study tool for my oral exams, but since I passed that hurdle in 2014, I have continued to use it to gather my thoughts on recent scholarship. Feel free to recommend books or articles for me to review via email or Twitter.
