Taste is the enemy of creativity: disability, YouTube and a new language

Ellis, K. (2012) Taste is the enemy of creativity: disability, YouTube and a new language. In: Brabazon, T., (ed.) Digital dialogues and community 2.0: After avatars, trolls and puppets. Woodhead Publishing Limited incorporating Chandos Publishing, Oxford, UK, pp. 121-134.

Abstract

Disability is everywhere and therefore nowhere. Although present in popular culture, its function is rarely of benefit to those with impairments. However, social media do provide options for diverse communities and citizens to communicate, resist, challenge and create a consciousness through popular culture. This chapter explores the new uses of new media, with attention to YouTube and its comment function.
