Poster presented at ISA Conference, 19 March 2015

Yesterday Dr Filippo Trevisan (University of Glasgow) and I shared our latest findings from our work on Google search trends at the International Studies Association Annual Convention in New Orleans. We explored search trends relating to the Five Star Movement and UKIP in the run up to the European Parliament Elections in May 2014.

Many thanks to the Ken Rogerson and colleagues in the International Communication section for their feedback.

New chapter on media representation of disability published today

Last year I contributed to a chapter on media representations of disability on British television before and after the 2012 Paralympics.

This chapter has been published today in an excellent Routledge book edited by Dan Jackson, Richard Scullion and colleagues. The reference for the chapter is:

Claydon, E.A, Reilly, P and Gunter, B (2015) Dis/Enablement? An analysis of the representation of impairment and disability on British terrestrial television pre- and post- the Paralympics, in Jackson, D, Hodges, C, Molesworth, M and Scullion, R (eds) Reframing disability? Media, (dis)empowerment and voice in the 2012 Paralympics, Routledge, pp.37-65.
