Ashton, D (2011) 'Media education and media industries: identity, anxiety, and aspirations.' Media Education Research Journal, 1 (2). pp. 85-93. ISSN 2040-4530


This article will address questions of media ‘theory’ and ‘practice’ divides, and point to the questions and critical issues that media industries analysis can provide. Emerging themes of analysis that emerge from media industries analysis and can be explored in the industry-facing education of students, include media work and identity, and working conditions, insecurity and uncertainty. This article will consider intersections between higher education focus on employability and media industries analysis and Career Studies perspectives, and related opportunities for exploring career aspirations and examining work practices and contexts in the media and cultural industries.
