               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?
