  1. Readers of this blog might be interested to read this article from today’s Guardian:

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2008/jun/14/idcards.religion

  2. I’m a university masters student in Australia and am researching the depiction of people with disability in the media.

    The research has a particular focus on journalists’ adherence or lack of it to established media guidelines on the depiction of people with disability.

    I am extremely keen to hear any opinion or suggestions.

    Cheers

    Shawn

  3. Nice to ‘meet’ you all. My work critiques nanotechnology and the way it is globally unfolding. Gregor’s written some important work on this area in relation to disability and ableism but for an early report that may be of interest, google the 2002 US National Science Foundation’s ‘Converging Technologies for Improving Human Performance’.

    Regards,

    Donnie

  4. Just a very brief note to say that I’ve joined, and will be interested in all things which push us to examine our 21st century notions of the human. Greg’s work pushes us along one of several important routes to thinking and rethinking this. I’d like to collaborate (once press of teaching subsides!) with others who think there is more than one genealogy to notions and depictions of the human, which might inform science studies and science policy.

  5. It is amazing to uncover an helpfulinteresting post for a change. So many blogs on the web which are usually a waste of your time looking at.
