I have started to investigate the way in which contemporary media represents disability (more specifically physical disability). After taking a closer look, I have realised that the media plays a huge role in society. Whether it be through radio, internet or broadcasts the media has a huge influence upon society. In my own opinion I do feel that the media does unfairly represent persons with disability. The mass media audience, I wonder what views they may have of persons with a...

Everyday, we hear tales of the ways tech companies make a difference. Apps that will somehow solve problems that big institutions couldn’t in the last 50 years; social networking sites that somehow spark revolutions that people themselves don’t… Many tech startup pitches would give high schoolers the idea that, in order to eradicate poverty, there’s no point learning about poverty itself; you just need to learn how to code. This overly optimistic talk of technology (bri...

By Dr. Guillermo Orozco, México. If anything currently distinguishes young lives, we would bet it be their positioning in the digital world. A positioning that is both a cultural and communicational survival in a world full of inequalities, fragmented identities and social, political and economic differences. The challenges that this offers for young people, and for those adults who accompany them, are many. First of course one must locate oneself within a participatory culture....
