Hegemony in Adverts (and the wider media)

The people who have witness my infrequent visits to the blogosphere may be aware of my interest in political communication and more specifically how communication aids power.

Below is a link to a short article I wrote exploring the Gramscian concept of Cultural Hegemony and how this is revealed through the use of stereotypes in adverts.


I hope you enjoy

Love reading about dark futures...

,,,then read my new article on dystopian literature, listing 10 very, very different  dystopian novels that all avid readers should read before they die (although one is only in there due to sheer popular pressure...see if you can guess which one it is).


Hope you enjoy the read and please remember to comment on the bottom of the article with your favourite dystopian literature.
