Dear all,


We have space for some additional chapters in the edited collection Disability and the Media: Other Bodies on the themes of disability, bodies, media and representation in Asia. 
 
Book edited by Diana Garrisi (JC School of Film and Television Arts, Xi’an Jiaotong Liverpool University) and Jacob Johanssen (Communication and Media Research Institute, University of Westminster)

Under contract with Routledge and to be published 2019 in the Routledge Research in Disability and Media Studies series (https://www.routledge.com/Routledge-Research-in-Disability-and-Media-Studies/book-series/RRDMS)


Using a variety of theoretical and methodological approaches this  volume  encompasses an array of media forms including cinema,  newspapers,  television, advertising and social media. This book has several purposes. It critically discusses the relationship between self-representation and representations in either reinforcing or debunking myths around disability and othering. It explores the cultural, political and commercial basis for why media can negatively portray some people as intrinsically different. Finally, it suggests that the dynamic relationship between traditional and new media and the blurred lines between forms of representation and self-representation in new media can make it more difficult to continue framing ability and disability as mutually exclusive categories, and therefore cast the latter as unwanted. The book presents instances of a possible, slow cultural shift in favour of non-dichotomic views on ability and disability increasingly represented as fluid and necessary conditions characterizing the essence of each human being.

We are specifically interested in chapters that focus on Asia and its different countries in relation to the themes of the book.

Possible themes include but are not limited to:  
·         Affective labour of bodies
·         Auto-ethnographic accounts of the body in / through digital media
·         Celebrity bodies and the spectacles of transformation
·         Cinema and disability
·         Contemporary coverage of disability in print/online/television/radio
·         De-colonizing and de-westernising the mediated body
·         Disability and advertising
·         Disability and race
·         Disability and the media: historical perspectives
·         (Dis)Empowerments of the disabled body
·         Journalism and practices of othering the body
·         Neoliberalism, policy and austerity politics
·         Reality television and the body
·         Representing wounds and scars
·         Researching bodies and the media: frameworks and methodologies
·         Stigma and the body
-         Posthumanist and non-representational frameworks
·         The abject body
·         The body and trauma
·         The mediated body as spectacle
·         The medicalised body in the media
·         The objectification of the disabled body in the media
