To all our friends and colleagues interested in pop culture, greetings:  with
a query and request--
     Please e-mail us about any recollections or sightings, in any Disney
*_animated_ short or full-length feature,* of what you consider disability,
disfigurement, or other (non-racial, non-gender) physical difference.  Eg,
the 7 Dwarfs of Sleeping Beauty, Peter Pan's Capt Hook, etc.
     We hope we have overlooked no examples as we prepare a Disney chapter
for the forthcoming anthology, "Making Differences,"  which surveys pop
images of disability in an entertaining, non-academic fashion.
     Call for writers -- BTW, if you know a writer who might be interested in
the Disney chapter, please encourage hi/r to contact us.  At this  point, the
assignment is still open.
     Star Trek writers? -- We also have not settled on a writer for a chapter
on disability/difference/physical loss stories in Star Trek (A Universe of
Differences), and would appreciate your alerting us to any writer wanting to
help on that.
    You are welcome to forward this note to any appropriate bbs.
