The little Difference - Dwarfism and the Media

Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject Communications - Research, Studies, Enquiries, grade: 1,0, , language: English, abstract: Even in our presumably modern world and enlightened time it seams odd for 'tall' humans to confront not a child, but a small-sized contemporary. The fascination of bodies which do not comply with the norm seems prevalent across cultures. The essay aims at introducing dwarfism as a medical condition, discussing the perception of dwarfism in society and history and critically analysing the (re)presentation of people with dwarfism in different types of media.
