QUESITON 2How does your media product represent particular social groups?
DOMINANT REPRESENTATION My music magazine presents a dominant representation of young people, within their social group. For example, they are represented as fun, drunk teenagers, who are young, so they are living their lives as teenagers, which is a stereotype people have given to young people today.
PEOPLE PRESENTED IN MY MEDIA PRODUCT• Young people are being represented dominantly to the current stereotypes of young people. They are exactly the same. The young people I am presenting in my media product, the typical stereotypes nowadays are exactly the same as the people I have used for my media product.
EMERGENT IDEOLOGY The dominant ideology of teenagers today is that all young people seen to be lazy, up to no good, like to party all the time, drinking a lot every night, and lacking respect to adults. However, In some respect it is becoming emergent ideology that young people are actually talented, and have future plans. In my media product, they might like to party all night, but they do go to college in the week to learn, and so they do have plans for the future. But that might not be the case at weekends.
DOMINANT REPRESENTATIONConnotations- Trouble, like todrink, scary, rude, like to party, at weekends.Weekdays they are intelligent, respectful.
