This study day will be particularly relevant to OCR’s AS Media exam on representation of social groups, as well as the A2 ‘perspective’ on Media and Collective Identity; AQA MEST3 on Representations in the Media; and WJEC Media Representation. The day will look at the origins of the concept of the ‘teenager’ in 1950s America but will focus on youth identity as a construct. In the morning a clip-rich presentation will examine messages sent about young people from a wide range of British films and TV, opening discussions about the accuracy of these representations and the intended audiences for these texts. In the afternoon there will be a film screening and a Q and A with the film-makers giving students and teachers a chance to ask questions about the context for representations of youth in the media.
