Course content

Professor Sonia Livingstone is one of the ‘key thinkers’ on regulation for the ‘Media Industries’ element of A Level Media Studies. She is the author of 20 books on media audiences and has a particular interest in the risks and opportunities the media offer children and young people. This is an exciting opportunity to hear her first-hand as she talks about her work in conversation with Mark Dixon, who has run several popular online twilights for EMC. Mark will introduce Livingstone’s work in the context of the A Level, and will also show how he would help students to apply her work to a set text.
