dc.description.abstractThis thesis examines themes of disability representation and ableism in the film 300. Though 300 has been criticized for alleged racism, sexism, and homophobia, and as a commentary on U.S. foreign policy, almost no one has examined the film’s representation of disability. Using a social construct theory framework, a content analysis of the treatment of disability and able-bodiedness in the film has been conducted. The resulting analysis has found that although the movie was set in the past, conscious decisions made by contemporary filmmakers provided an unmistakable ableist agenda for today.
