Television’s spectacle of autism: Metaphors of a popular network program

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This study explored the metaphor of autism as fear, oddity, and disease in the discourse of a popular American television program, arguing that the public was exposed to multiple metaphorical presentations of autism that are not necessarily representative of the culture of autism. While autism as a diagnosis is characterized largely by cognitive and behavioral characteristics, the discourse presented through the program may have inflated such characteristics for the viewing public.
