Second Edition, Published 17 September, 2007. Myra Hindley was convicted in 1966 of the murder of two children in what came to be known as The Moors Murders case. Although there is no evidence to... More > suggest that Hindley carried out any of the murders herself, she became the most reviled woman in Britain while Ian Brady's name was rarely mentioned Was Myra Hindley imprisoned for thirty seven years and never released not because of any uniquely horrific quality of her crimes but because she was a woman who was involved in the murder of children? In this controversial book, written as a thesis in 1995, I effect an examination of the ways in which Myra Hindley was represented in the popular media and literature before her death. I position these representations in relation to those of women and female criminals in general and also include reference to the concept of sanity as it relates to culpability and to the issue of the innocence of children as victims.< Less

Paperback: List Price: $10.00 $7.50 | You Save: 25%
Prints in 3-5 business days
The presented work is representations of the students in my Zombies as Popular Media class depicted as types of zombies or zombie related fictional personas. I made a list of possible characters... More > based off of the texts and films for the class. Each student chose blindly from a hat which character I would have to portray him or her as. The purpose of this project is to play on the perception of the uncanny. The use of zombie as a plot device, in a work of fiction, is consistently a stand in or representation of the current cultural fears or, more inwardly, the fear of the self. The power of the monster in creating horror is the potential that the monster is no more than what we are. Make a slight mistake and we could become part of their masses. The students who have decided to learn about monsters have been infected by philosophical theory. They have no say in what will become of them. They have to face the monsters or survivors they have become.< Less

More > Collecting information from various fields, juxtaposing them on the historical time-line of artworks, the book focuses on space in self-portraits, shared between the person self-portraying and the viewer.

This study, using critical discourse analysis, attempts to expand upon knowledge of Orientalism in the media, by examining the response of three elite US newspapers, via their editorials, to the 2011... More > Egyptian Revolution. The study outlines evidence that strongly suggests that the media’s representation of Arabs and Muslims, especially since the September 11th attacks, is imbued with the ideology of Orientalism. The study found that the majority of the editorials do express support for the protestors, however, identified through the critical discourse analysis were a number of tempering Orientalist themes. These hemes serve to largely negate support for the revolution and to induce a sense of unease, fear and mistrust surrounding the events. This study argues that while the editorials covering the revolution clearly do not display the kind of overt, aggressive Orientalism observed in previous cases, nonetheless, there exists a kind of subtle, underlying Orientalism that is present throughout.< Less
