|What is “Context”?|
|How can we place cultural and media production in context?|
|What do we need to look at/ look for?|
|What other knowledge do we need to have?|
|What questions do we need to be asking of context?|
- When: When was it produced? What was happening at the time that gave rise to it? When was it distributed?
- Why: why was the text produced by this person or organisation? Why was it produced in this way (and not any other possible way)?
- How: How was it produced (by a company/individual)? How is the meaning made (what techniques do they use to get the message across). How is it distributed?
- What: What are the effects of the text on the audience? What are the wider social effects?
