For a second year, a 'Disability and Communication' stream, convened by Dr

showcase research about disability - bringing together those interested in
making disability an integral and vibrant part of media and communications
research, teaching, policy, and practice.

In keeping with this year's ANZCA theme theme, we call for contributions on

* Where do critical conceptions of disability fit into current discourses of
* What are the new possibilities for justice, ethics and disability from
changes in global citizenship (not least the new UN Convention on the Rights
of Persons with Disabilities)?
* How do people with disabilities figure in contemporary media culture in
Australia and New Zealand, and the Asia-Pacific region?
* What are the new cultures of disability to be found in digital
technologies and environments, from Second Life, through mobiles, to digital
broadcasting, and new media technologies of disability?
* How should media and communications studies and research respond to the
new political and scholarly developments around disability in Australasia?
