Example text

Cumberbatch and Negrine (1992) saw the hierarchical organization of television and its economic structures as barriers to any changes in the representation and inclusion of disabled people. By the end of the 1990s, however, Gauntlett and Hill were more optimistic. ‘Identity politics has made familiar a list of categories – gender, ethnicity, sexuality, disability and (to a lesser extent) age which are now “up for grabs” in identity terms’ (1999: 132). This was certainly borne out by programmes such as Freak Out (Channel 4, 2000) and the BBC 2 (2002) season of broadcasts What’s Your Problem?

Hevey describes how this highlighted the growing conflict between the charity advertising representation of disablement and the growing presence of a political body of disabled people seeking access and rights. Representation in film and on television Norden considers film the ‘most pervasive and influential of the media arts, functioning as a reflection of the values of the society from which it has arisen, and which society then takes up in an unquestioning way and reaffirms’ (1994: 1). Certainly cinematic technologies have raised the quality of image and sound to make film a ‘particularly intense experience’ for the audience (Abercrombie, 1996: 10).

Conclusion It is unclear how these contemporary representations of people with impairments will develop and cohere with the emerging cultural analyses within disability studies and disability arts. Darke (2004) argues that the representation of disabled people currently is much as it has been for the last ten years, namely ‘clichéd, stereotyped and archetypal’. However, mainstream producers of imagery in the mass media have at least become more aware of the ways in which disabled people are represented and have become more committed to an inclusive approach.
