Toward a Disability Media Studies
In this introduction, Elizabeth Ellcessor, Mack Hagood, and Bill Kirkpatrick orient newcomers to the fields of media and disability studies, highlighting key theories, methodologies, and scholarly trajectories of each. From this foundation, they argue for the formation of a “disability media studies” that builds upon common ground (including feminist, queer, critical race, and cultural studies influences) and broadens each field by introducing new topics and methods of inquiry. However, rather than a didactic perspective, this introduction emphasizes the formation of disability media studies as a process of conversation and collaboration, offering the chapters in the collection as a starting point for interdisciplinary growth.
