6 Conclusion

As you moved through the various techniques we can use to analyse media texts in Sections 2 to Section 4, you should have discovered how rich even the simplest text can be in its drawing on political, social and cultural meanings discernible by close attention. Textual analysis enables you to register and negotiate the polysemy of texts and to see how the preferred reading is not the only one available. The preferred reading may be given prominence, however, by anchoring or by the genre chose

2.3 The representation of ‘celebrity’

We have already seen the way in which texts gain meaning from other texts by the operation of contrast, but multiple texts are useful to the textual analyst in another way. Looking at a large number of texts dealing with the same subject – celebrity – enables us to detect common themes and narratives (stories), to the extent that with enough repetition we become able to talk about the representation of that subject. Working through a large number of texts about celebrities, we beco

5.2.2 Identify the outcomes you hope to achieve

An outcome is the result or consequence of a process. For example, you may want to integrate information resulting from CD-Rom and Internet searches into a report, and to do this you may need to improve your word-processing skills. In this case your report is an outcome, and using your IT skills is part of the process by which you achieve that outcome.

Try to express the outcomes you hope to achieve as clearly and accurately as possible, asking others for help and comments if necessary.

Measuring Pots (Archaeology)
Because ancient pots are usually found broken into hundreds of pieces (sherds), archaeologists find it tedious and often impossible to glue them back together. One way they get an idea of how large a pot was is by calculating its original circumference. Rim sherds are used to do this because they often indicate how large the vessel opening was.

1 1 Aim
There is increasing recognition that the reductionist mindset that is currently dominating society, rooted in unlimited economic growth unperceptive to its social and environmental impact, cannot resolve the converging environmental, social and economic crises we now face. The primary aim of this unit is to encourage the shift away from reductionist and human centred thinking towards a holistic and ecological worldview.
