Representations of Disability in Print News Media in Postsocialist Ukraine
Phillips, Sarah D.
Disability & Society, v27 n4 p487-502 2012
This article examines the narrative discourses that shape representations of disability in newspapers in postsocialist Ukraine, arguing that narratives about disability are linked to a meta-discourse of "transition" that emphasizes disorder. Further, newspaper coverage prescribes competing and contradictory models of citizenship and personhood for postsocialist subjects living with disabilities. The article offers recommendations for improving press coverage of disability issues. (Contains 2 tables and 7 notes.)
