Wheeling free?: Disability studies meets media studies and the Australian media

Jakubowicz, Andrew,

Academic Literature

2003

Media studies address the complexity of communication. The media plays a critical role in enabling the existence pf democratic societies. Yet the public sphere is still barred to the entry of many people with disabilities. Disability studies enhance the insights from media studies and have an effect on media practices. A systematic examination of disability in the Australian media can generate a much wider sense of how best practice can be developed and implemented.
