Abstract

This essay explores disability studies in broadcast journalism education and seeks to help answer a question faced by teachers: Does the material discussed in class make a difference in their lives, including how they approach their work? This essay draws on a case study of university broadcast journalism students who took part in classes that explored the representation of people with disability (PWD) in the media. It looks at whether diversity studies are relevant to the post-university lives of journalism students and whether it has affected the way they report about PWD.
