Digital disability: The Social construction of disability in new media

Author: Goggin, G., Newell, C.
Type: Book
Year: 2003


This book, written by Queensland academic, Gerard Goggin and Tasmanian academic Christopher Newell, discusses how media representation of and for the disabled has been recharged in recent years with the expansion of new media worldwide. The book also discusses how interactive digital communications--such as the Internet, new varieties of voice and text telephones, and digital broadcasting--have created a need for a more innovative understanding of new media and disability issues. This book also offers a global perspective on how people with disabilities are represented as users, consumers, viewers, or listeners of new media, by policymakers, corporations, programmers, and the disabled themselves
