The development of television literacy : talk, text and context

This thesis seeks to contribute to a theory of ‘television literacy’ – that is, of the understandings and competencies children employ in interpreting and using the medium – which is both social and developmental. The main focus of the research is on the way s in which these competencies are mobilised and defined in small-group talk. The data are drawn from a series of interviews with a core sample of ninety children in three different age groups, aged between seven and twelve.
