Routledge Companion to Disability and Media (Hardcover)
about this item
The media help shape a range of economic, political, social, cultural, technological and attitudinal issues related to disability, and yet to date, there has not been a single definitive resource for those looking to examine the intersection of disability and media. International in scope, this new companion hopes to fill that gap. A range of leading scholars and practitioners with expertise in disability studies and media offer students and scholars alike a comprehensive survey the state of the discipline, including established research (for instance, in relation to access, and to representation of disability in the press), as well as emerging and cutting edge areas (especially social, mobile, and digital media, as well as the Internet).
