Constellation, Dominican’s digital repository of scholarship, now contains the full run of History Professor David Perry’s contributions to Al-Jazeera America. Perry’s pieces are mainly about people with disabilities and related policy and media issues, such as portrayal of people with disabilities on television and police conduct toward the mentally and physically disabled.
Al-Jazeera America stopped its TV and online news services last month. Though its web site still exists, providing archival content for the last 3 years, Perry’s work was saved in Constellation to guarantee future access should the web site be taken down entirely. Having the work in Constellation also adds to Perry’s prestige as a public academic (he is a regular contributor to CNN, The Atlantic, and other news outlets) and strengthens Dominican’s scholarly reputation.
Perry’s Al-Jazeera America work can be found in the RCAS Faculty Scholarship community in Constellation.
