My scholarly work has turned increasingly to Popular Culture Studies in recent years. My work as editor of Diversity in Disney Films confirms the continuation of a trend in which portrayals, particularly of physical disabilities, are still largely negative, though such trends, as with ethnicity, may be shifting some. While I'm more concerned with poetic techniques especially in the revising process, it was probably inevitable that popular culture and fairy tale references would eventually show up in my disability-themed poems as well.
