New report released by GLAAD shows that scripted characters with disabilities represent only one percent of all scripted series regular characters.
We are holding the Currents in the Mainstream conference in September 22nd 2010 as the first event of the MeCCSA Disability Studies Network. One of the overriding principles of the network is the creation of an inclusive and accessible forum for debate on media and disability. To that end, we welcome your ideas and contributions. If you can’t attend we hope you will participate in other ways; by emailing us with your ideas, leaving your comments or joining and helping us develop our ongoing activities.
