Disabling diversity : the social construction of disability in 1990s Australian national cinema / Kate Ellis

AUSTRALIA; AUSTRALIA. 1990's Summary: " Ellis offers a rich account of Australian cinema from the standpoint of critical disability studies, one of the few full-length accounts of disability and film internationally and a pioneering study that should be widely read. Gerard Goggin, coauthor of Disability in Australia Disabled characters in 1990s Australian national cinema are both invisible and hypervisible. Existing within the landscape of diversity as it emerged in repsonse to multiculturalism and minority group interests, they are most often used to rehabilitate a previously marginalised other. This book critically examines numerous 1990s Australian films with reference to socio-political influences to approach disability as a problem with society rather than as one within a damaged body. This book is directed towards researchers in Communications, Media Studies, and Film and Disabiltiy fields. This book is also addressed to those who have an interest in people who exist on the margins of society.

Trauma and disability in Mad Max : beyond the Road Warrior's fury / Mick Broderick; Katie Ellis
Cham, Switzerland: Palgrave Macmillan, 2019.
Call No: 747.77 BRO Author: Broderick, Mick; Ellis, Katie Edition: 2019 Place: Cham, Switzerland Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan PubDate: 2019 PhysDes: 112 pages ; 22cm Subject: DISABLED IN FILMS; MAD MAX [...] (AT, 1979-85) Summary: This book explores the inter-relationship of disability and trauma in the Mad Max films (1979-2015). George Miller’s long-running series is replete with narratives and imagery of trauma, both physical and emotional, along with major and minor characters who are prominently disabled. The Mad Max movies foreground representations of the body – in devastating injury and its lasting effects – and in the broader social and historical contexts of trauma, disability, gender and myth.
Over the franchise’s four-decade span significant social and cultural change has occurred globally. Many of the images of disability and trauma central to Max’s post-apocalyptic wasteland can be seen to represent these societal shifts, incorporating both decline and rejuvenation. These shifts include concerns with social, economic and political disintegration under late capitalism, projections of survival after nuclear war, and the impact of anthropogenic climate change.
Drawing on screen production processes, textual analysis and reception studies this book interrogates the role of these representations of disability, trauma, gender and myth to offer an in-depth cultural analysis of the social critiques evident within the fantasies of Mad Max. -- publisher's web site ISBN: 9783030194383 More info
