Dedicated to a media engagement with disability, this series fosters critical, contextual analyses and cross-disciplinary examinations of disability from a media studies perspective. From mass media representations to the in/accessibility of digital media technologies, online spaces and adaptive devices, media is fundamentally significant to the experience of disability. Without being aligned to a specific theoretical or methodological approach, Routledge Research in Disability and Media Studies publishes monographs and edited collections that promote dialogues on central subjects, such as texts and meaning, the production of media texts, media audiences, digital media influences and media histories as well as the intersections between these different lines of enquiry in complimentary areas such as anthropology, design, performance studies, science and technology studies, music, and media advocacy/activism.
