About this product
- DescriptionThe London 2012 Paralympic Games - the biggest, most accessible and best-attended games in the Paralympics' 64-year history - came with an explicit aim to transform the perception of disabled people in society, and use sport to contribute to a better world for all people with a disability. This social agenda offered the potential to re-frame disability; to symbolically challenge ableist ideology and to offer a reinvention of the (dis)abled body and a redefinition of the possible. This edited collection investigates what has and is happening in relation to these ambitions. The book is structured around three key questions: 1. What were the predominant mediated narratives surrounding the Paralympics, and what are the associated meanings attached to them? 2. How were the Paralympics experienced by media audiences (both disabled and n-disabled)? 3. To what extent did the 2012 Paralympics inspire social change? Each section of this book is interspersed with authentic voices from outside academia: broadcasters, athletes and disabled schoolchildren.
