  • Could be a bit 'bitty': various things to get you started but not necessarily all joined up at this point.
  • Therefore issues of power, influence, resistance etc come into negotiations (fashion's 20% of trend leaders ..., ) Eg's of this in sociolinguistics ... pronouns of solidarity and power .. Tu / Vous tu/vosotros/usted(es) du /ihr /Sie historically – Thou in English. (Quakers, also 'would his majesty core to ..r' etc)
  • May be a new term to some (?) Ask for any comments or questions. Note Marxist origins esp Gramsci. Note the importance of the 'velvet glove' version of exercise of power. Cf pronouns of solidarity etc; some cultural analysis is attempting to trace the contours of power relations in the use and meanings of cultural texts and artefacts.
  • I think that this definition shows its origins in Marxist discourse. I think that ideologies can operate among the marginalisde and dispossessed in countering that of a dominant group.... It could be seen in relation to justifications for states of affairs. Relates to Marxist ideas of 'false consciousness'
  • Find bit in the handout to look over. What analysis does Barthes give of this imge? What forces does he identify at work and how? Do we agree or disagree, a bit of both? How do we respond as Christians?
  • What are the main observations? What kind of analytical tools does Fiske use? What do we find helpful? Is there anything we struggle with? Is there anything we find particularly persuasive or unpersuasive.
  • Connect with Marxian analysis. Economic determinism and a prediliction for the social tended to give analysis of mass media and culture in 'top-down' terms. (Adorno etc). What people like Fiske, Bourdieu, Hebdige etc start to do is to show that there is also a bottom-up resistance or subverting for own ends: asserting own meanings for own purposes. But this is dialogical with the 'inherited' meanings that are more widely used and may have hegemonic dimensions. The evasion of hegmonic meanings is pleasurable (gives a frisson, often).

  • Question here: what do you understand by the term. How do people you know react? How does the press react? And you?

  • Just briefly read out and relate to answers from previous slide.
  • Invite them to consider how this differs. DON'T EXPLORE MORE at this point – go onto next slide quickly
