  3. 3. Representation
  4. 4. Representation <ul><li>At AS level you were asked the following </li></ul><ul><li>questions: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Who is being represented? </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>• In what way? </li></ul><ul><li>• By whom? </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Why is the subject being represented in this way? </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Is the representation fair and accurate? </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>What opportunities exist for self-representation by the subject? </li></ul></ul></ul>
  5. 5. In addition, at A2 level you will be: <ul><li>Exploring two detailed studies of the images of particular groups or places across a range of media. </li></ul><ul><li>Which will include looking at: </li></ul><ul><li>Alternative images of these groups or places across the media. </li></ul><ul><li>General issues of representation and stereotyping </li></ul><ul><li>Problems of producing fair and accurate media representations. </li></ul><ul><li>Representation and power . </li></ul><ul><li>Reasons for dominant representations (e.g. historic, economic, social, political etc). </li></ul>

You need to look no further than the nearest soap opera to see your age being screened to millions in a way that you may find offensive or patronising. </li></ul><ul><li>Write down 3 teenager characters on TV and make brief notes on how they come across. Are they true reflections of teenagers? </li></ul><ul><li>Consider what the Press has to report about teenagers recently- what stories are very often highlighted? What impact do you think this has on wider society? </li></ul>
  7. 7. A good starting point with representation: consider how these ‘presentations’ of people are CONSTRUCTED (made). Your turn to have a go:
  8. 8. your personality likes/ dislikes your values (things you consider to be important or not so) Your different roles and responsibilities (home/school/work) dreams/ ambitions hobbies/interests Thinking about Representation You
  9. 9. Are there times when you feel misrepresented or falsely represented? When? How did it make you feel?
