Representing disability in an ableist world: Essays on mass media

Author: Haller, B. A.
Year: 2010
Type: Book

Abstract:

This book focuses exclusively on ways in which disability is represented in a variety of media including advertising, news, entertainment television, film and Internet new media. The study provides methodologies for assessing media images using case studies and templates for engaging in disability studies research and discourse analysis. As such it is a valuable tool for educating students in the fields of disability or media studies about responsible consuming, reporting and reviewing of disability issues in the news and in society at large. This is an important book as few scholars have analysed disability media in any systematic way.
