Gerard Goggin’s latest publication focuses on the Internet, which is now 25 years old, but mobile Internet accessibility is struggling to keep up. He asks, “the web is our virtual commons, but how can we empower all people to use and contribute to the web regardless of language and ability?”
Gerard Goggin is Professor of Media and Communications at the University of Sydney. His research focuses on the social and cultural aspects of mobile media and Internet, as well as disability and digital technology. He co-authored the landmark book with the late Christopher Newell, Disability in Australia: Exposing a social apartheid. A review of the book provides an overview of the issues covered. A good reference for understanding the routine oppression of people with disabilty in Australia.
