Breaking Blind Stereotypes: Part 1

Feb 25, 2020, 04:20 PM

Media can often misrepresent the blind and visually impaired community, but how are negative stereotypes formed, how does society internalise them and can these misrepresentations lead to stigma?
Dr Catalin Brylla, Lecturer in Film and TV at Bournemouth University and RNIB Connect Radio’s Simon Pauley discuss breaking down blind stereotypes in this 8-part series.

Listen out for the next episode of ‘Breaking Blind Stereotypes’ Tuesday 3rd of March after 4 PM on RNIB Connect Radio.
