Choose a media representation and identify how it constructs its audience. Use Graeme Turner�s analysis of Sarah Jackson�s �Hamid Karzai portrayal� as an exemplar.
Your essay should address the following three areas:
What do you believe the �preferred reading� will likely be, i.e., what kinds of roles/subject positions are viewers/listeners/readers expected to assume? what conclusions does the preferred reading encourage us to form about the topic represented?
Can you think of one or more alternative interpretations that could be based on the same representation? Provide examples.
Discuss some of the characteristics of both representations (texts) and audiences (readers) that make plural interpretations not only possible, but also probable.
