Visual Media: Theories and Representations

As you probably know by the number of blog posts featuring the word “visual“, I’m a sucker for anything that smacks of “visual sociology” (the clue is probably in what I do…) and I recently chanced upon what I think are two very neat “picture-type” pdf resources covering:

Media Theories

1. Media Theories: the material here involves a page on Identity theory and two further pages on representations of youth.

2. Media Representations: this is organised around 4 categories (Gender, Age, Sexuality and Ethnicity) and consists of a page outlining different theories and a further page packed chock-full with examples of each.

The materials don’t go into any great depth or detail but I like the way they’ve been constructed and presented (particularly the media theory resources).

You can use them as a way of presenting some introductory information about both topics or as an example of the type of visual notes students might be encouraged to create for revision purposes.
