Talk:Intellectual Traditions in Media Literacy
We're examining several strands and major traditions in media literacy:
1. Cultural Studies -- the "critical" wing
2. Cultural Studies -- the "popular culture" wing
3. Media Effects -- the "media environment" wing
4. Media Effects --- the "media and children" wing
5. Education -- the "constructivist" and "new literacies" wings
6. Education -- the "educational technology" wing
How many wings does this bird have? sheesh!
Was wondering if you had considered:
- John Berger's Ways of Seeing (obviously)? I've had good success in schools with the book and videos (even today). Very accessible.
- Bill Nichols (although far less accessible) for his review of ideology as formed by image and representation? Ideology and the Image.
- William Ivins for his text Prints and Visual Communication. A historical look at print technology and its impact on thinking.
I thought these three worthy of a section directly after the section that focuses on Neil Postman's insights. The final paragraph makes reference to "others" and it may as well be a brief follow on section that points people in other similar directions. --Leighblackall 08:10, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
