  • A more reflexive education for textual agents, then. We might well ask these questions. They can be adapted. My next project will be asking the great and the good to develop schemes of work for relativist textual education, linking together high culture, pop culture, online exchange, aspects of every day and DIY creativity, with these questions as the curriculum framework. The simplest way of expressing the problem is this – We’ve pontificated and debated and navel gazed about the greater or lesser erosion of boundaries between media and audience, producer and consumer, without seeing what is staring us in the face – it’s the boundaries between home and school and between teaching and learning, the shifting nature of EXPERTISE that we need to think about.

  • And that’s me. Thanks for listening. And whilst I was gutted that I couldn’t accept the invitation to fly out to be there with the entire Fraser family, as the reason is that I’m going to New York tomorrow with my own, I can’t really feel too sorry for myself.

  • Towards the Trans-Expert Crazy Forays and Collaborations
  • New frameworks? ).
  • • What does your textual experience look and feel like? • What different spaces and places are there for consuming and producing textual meaning? • What does it mean to be a producer and consumer in these spaces and places? • What different kinds of textual associations and affiliations do you make, with whom and for what? • What is an author and what is being creative? • How do you represent yourself in different spaces and places? • What is reading, what is writing, what is speaking and what is listening and what is learning?
  • 1: Social Documentary as a Pedagogic Tool
  • Social Documentary • Shared ‘social’ issue / theme • Community of practice / lifeworld • ‘Strangers in own community’ (Heath) Combining: • Managing a media production • Working ethnographically Outcome = self-expression – VOICE
  • Citizenship • Digital media – ‘convivial tool’ (Illich) • Participation in democracy • Shaping own world UK National Curriculum: • Media representation • Bias and public opinion • Self-representation
  • (Digital) Ethnography • Research is textual • Documentary = text • Documentary production = research • Learners are agents in the research. • Reflexive immersion in the SITUATION • No objectivity
  • Data: films, interviews, community events, online dissemination, film festivals. Pedagogic Tool (comparative) Ethnography – documentary as research Learners as researchers Role of technology Developed further into PHD studentships
  • Reading Games as (Authorless) Literature Richard Berger and Julian McDougall
  • Barthes allows students the realisation that they can look at the world from different angles - that meaning rarely lies on the surface and that culture is a complex web of interconnections. (Culture and Communications teacher, wikispace strand).

  • Only a flattened cultural hierarchy combined with a relativist pedagogy can facilitate emancipatory learning in textual fields, including media education. Imagine ‘doing text’ after the subject. After the death of Media Studies. But also the death of English and all other text-conscious ‘subjects’. We’d be resurrected as just TEXT. Pure relativism. Indisciplined pedagogy. Not only removing ‘the media’ from our gaze, but also ‘Literature’ and ‘Art’. Leaving only text and event. And culture. A reflexive pedagogy of the texture of life – a pedagogy of the inexpert. A pedagogy of CURATION.
  • The ‘Big Idea’: Transmedia – reflected in ‘transexpert’ pedagogy ‘Fused’ narrative emerging from: • Funded research projects + PHD studentships • Emergent collaborations • REF obligations • Discipline themes
