Annika Konrad studies disability communication, specifically the rhetorical and literate practices of people who are blind and visually impaired. Her goal is to better understand how people learn to communicate about disability. She runs a community-writing project for people who are blind and visually impaired, and volunteers with the Wisconsin Council of the Blind and Visually Impaired. She is the managing editor for a blog about blindness and vision impairment called The Outlook From Here (theoutlookfromhere.wordpress.com). Konrad is interested in learning how scientific, humanistic, and social scientific approaches to vision research can be brought into conversation with humanities research.
