For their final project inĀ FG212/RM200/FM206 Critical Media Studies (Block C 2021), Anna Boden, Andrew Hoffman, Victoria Calton, Cassia Soodak, and Carlee Castillo critiqued several scenes from an episode Disney’s Girl Meets World that addresses autism and a tweet endorsing the episode from Autism Speaks, focusing especially on ableism. For the new media creation portion of their project, they recreated the scenes and created a series of tweets, carefully acknowledging their own limitations regarding ableism, race, gender, and sexuality during their in-class presentation.
