               on topic of Images of Disability in Film
                       for proposed panel at the
              Society for Cinema Studies Conference, '95
History of disability as idiosyncrasy or "depth" in the invention of
character in narrative film art: How are genres (melodrama, film noir,
cartoons, post-war) and "high art" film organized around differing
inflections of impairment?  How is a social body discernible via
individual limitation?  How does film image serve as prosthesis?
