Mvid representations terms --notes from examples

  1. 1. TERMINOLOGY: GENDER BINGO…TERMINOLOGY: GENDER BINGO… Your challenge is to include all of the terms listed under gender/sexuality (as the two are so interwoven) at least once, with a clearly denoted example. Videos are of course open to differing readings: the production context, performer’s published thoughts on their work, director, lyrics … all might be relevant – so conflicting terms might be applied to the same video. SOME WIDER TERMS YOU MIGHT USE: Baudrillard’s simulacrum; postmodern, deconstructionist (D Mode) intertextuality, readings, polysemy, anchorage, binary opposition, protagonist, Proppian archetypes... Audience considerations are relevant for almost any Media analysis, and they are here: niche, mainstream, primary, secondary, uses and gratifications REPRESENTATION TERMS – CAN YOU USE ALL AT LEAST ONCE? Stereotype, countertype, un/conventional, generic, sub-cultural, (hetero-)normative, counter-hegemonic, feminist, patriarchal, misogynistic, (fe)male gaze, (modified?) Bechdel Test, objectify/objectification, metrosexual, masculine, feminine, queer: performativity (Judith Butler). VIDEO TERM EXAMPLE/NOTES Spice Girls Wannabe Feminist? The ‘girl power’ slogan; introducing individuated costumes + characters in a girl band (previously they wore matching outfits), Sporty Spice… Post-feminist? Still known for revealing costume + sexually charged performance. Male manager undermine this? Eurythmics Sweet Dreams… Conchita Wurst Rise Like a Phoenix Katy Perry (feat.
