Transcript

  • 1. Representations<br />Year 12 Media - 2011<br />
  • 2. This is not a pipe<br />
  • 3. This is not Miss Webber<br />
  • 4. Huh?<br />These are not the actual thing or person – they are a representation of the thing.<br />Representation means to re-present (i.e. show again)<br />Individuals and groups of people are represented in the media as being a certain way. This is a construct of reality and NOT reality itself.<br />
  • 5. Let’s take Snooki<br />
  • 6.
  • 7.
  • 8. How we are represented<br />Remember when we watched the Charlie Brooker video – they were able to manipulate what was happening onscreen in order to tell the story they wanted to tell. Media does this all the time.<br />I could represent this class as diligent and hard working<br />Or I could represent them as off-task and disengaged.<br />
  • 9. We can show the police as caring and helpful<br />
  • 10.
  • 11. The media selects (mediates) the way it shows people to serve its own purposes.<br />The way in which a media producer (the person who made the media product – ad, film, tv show) represents a person or group is affected by their own experiences and values and society’s dominant values.<br />
  • 12. How representations work<br />They are repeated<br />We are asked to identify with or recognise the representation<br />They make generalisations about people – grouping them together – mothers, business, teenagers<br />Representations both SHOW and SHAPE our world<br />
  • 13. Representations<br />We’re creating representations all the time – if you’ve got a Facebook page you’ve definitely created a representation of yourself.<br />Think about what you choose to put on there, and what you choose not to put on there.<br />D Sharon Pruitt<br />
  • 14. Stereotypes<br />The idea of representation in media is really key, because if you see the same representation again and again, you start to believe it is true.<br />These repeated representations can become stereotypes.<br />Stereotypes are useful for media producers as they are like a ‘short cut’ that media consumers can recognise and decode immediately – someone with glasses is smart, blondes are ditzy<br />
  • 15. Stereotypes are often highly judgmental and over-simplified. They are an extreme form of stereotyping that become ‘natural’ through repetition. Stereotyping often involves minority groups and prejudice, and come about due to a power imbalance between groups in society.<br />
  • 16. Brainstorm – how are teenagers represented in the media? Think about where you see them. What you see them doing? Think tv, ads, news stories.<br />
  • 17. When viewing/reading any media text you should ask these questions<br />Who made it?<br />When was it made?<br />What was it made for?<br />Who benefits from this representation or whose point of view does it support?<br />Who does not benefit from this representation or whose point of view is not considered?<br />Who or what is not shown?<br />
  • 18. For this standard you will learn about:<br />features that create the representation<br />the difference between the representation and reality<br />the stereotypes/messages/values that are created by the representation<br />the selection and/or omission of material<br />who created the representation.<br />
  • 19. Merit<br />how the representation has been created by the features<br />reasons for the difference between the representation and reality<br />how the stereotypes/messages/values are created by the representation<br />reasons why the selection and/or omission of material reinforce stereotypes/ messages/or values<br />the connection between the representation and the world view/ideology of the creator(s) of the representation.<br />
  • 20. Excellence<br />the effectiveness of the features in creating the representation<br />implications of the difference(s) between the representation and reality<br />the implications and/or effectiveness of the stereotypes/messages/values that are created by the representation <br />the implications and issues associated with the selection and/or omission of material<br />the effect of the connection between the representation and the world view/ideology of the creator(s) of the representation.<br />
