My chosen case study is Young Female Actresses and my teacher has given us a 'Case Study Guideline' on how to start writing it up. I'm still very confused though, here is the Case Study guideline and I'm wondering if anyone could help.

-Specific representation in the media
-Range of products from all 3 platforms

How to apply your case study
1) Find a specific media product on a specific platform

2)Ask these questions:
Who has produced this representation?
What was their intended effect?
Who is the target audience?
How does this affect the representation?
What is the institutional/genre context?
How does this effect the representation?

3)What is the preferred reading(s)?
What is the oppositional reading(s)?

4) Look at the representation as:
-A marxist
-A liberal pluralist
and explain these answers

5) MUST still use Media Language
MUST perform semiotic analysis

Try to get lots of different institutions representing the same thing (e.g. self-representation)

If anyone understands how to even link this guideline with the topic area that I have chosen then please help.

Thank you!
