Louise Hickman is a Ph.D. candidate in Communication at the University of California, San Diego. She completed her Bachelors degree with honors in American Studies at King’s College London, and the University of California, Berkeley. During her year at Berkeley, she served as Vice-President of the Disabled Student’s Union. Currently Louise serves as an access consultant for Catalyst: Feminism, Theory and Technoscience, a peer-reviewed, open-source journal, advocating for a platform where access will remain an on-going project, a reflexive, collaborative, and distributed effort in digital and disability design. Following this premise, her work has also included installation of The Totem Project, which was shown as part of the exhibition “Senses of Care” in Calit2 (California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology Gallery Space) in Spring 2014.
