New chapter on media representation of disability published today

Last year I contributed to a chapter on media representations of disability on British television before and after the 2012 Paralympics.

This chapter has been published today in an excellent Routledge book edited by Dan Jackson, Richard Scullion and colleagues. The reference for the chapter is:

Claydon, E.A, Reilly, P and Gunter, B (2015) Dis/Enablement? An analysis of the representation of impairment and disability on British terrestrial television pre- and post- the Paralympics, in Jackson, D, Hodges, C, Molesworth, M and Scullion, R (eds) Reframing disability? Media, (dis)empowerment and voice in the 2012 Paralympics, Routledge, pp.37-65.

More information on the book (including how to purchase it) can be found here
