The price of the popular media is paid by the effluent citizen
chapterposted on 18.06.2019, 13:40 by Toby Miller
An important shared interest of disability studies and media studies is the materiality of media and its consequences for differently situated subjects. Toby Miller examines both ends of the production cycle of media technologies—manufacture and disposal—to demonstrate the interconnected ways that they are physically, economically, environmentally, and politically disabling. He reveals how these modes of disablement collectively produce the liminal status of “effluent citizenship” for poor and despised laborers on the fringes of the global economy upon whom the popular media depend.
