Contexts of Production

Session Questions :

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?
