Embry Wood Owen, a white woman wearing glasses and a yellow scarf


My name is Embry Wood Owen, and I am a qualitative researcher and writer in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Statement of Purpose

I am a writer working at the intersection of disability, sociology and technology. I write to better understand my own experience with disability and how it manifests in the built environment. In my research and reflection I work to unpack how disability intersects with other identities. Reading and writing disability scholarship allows me to build community and power with other people with disabilities. Finally, I am writing to envision a world in which people with disabilities are not an afterthought but rather are finally understood as fully human.
