My teacher said it might be Age, Ethnicity or even Nationality/Regionality.

I hope it is age because there are so many things you can talk about and different angles you can view and take the question on.

What are your case studies for these areas of representation? Thanks in advance!

Very unlikely to be National Identity as it was that last year, my teacher seems to think Ethnicity/Women/Age, I'm preparing for everything though with 3 case studies for each possible one!

oh so you can refer back to them as your own examples to talk about?

Not really sure on timings as its a print text to analyse but they may give a rough guideline on the front of the paper
and for the analysis I usually look at Visual,Language,Technical codes and any genre iconography, and the other ones I just look at 3 texts and hoe they represent whatever topic it is
