From Wikiversity
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Media Educators have developed a set of Key Concepts through which new students can be introduced to the subject. These are often remembered through the acronym MIGRAINE:

M - Media Language
I - Institutions
G - Genre
R - Representation
A - Audience
I - Ideologies and Values
N - Narrative
E - Economical, political, social, historical!

These should be seen as a starting point for the study of the Media and not an exhaustive model of Media Studies.
