In the recording we outline six claims about representation.
One: Representation is a social process.
Two: Representations construct reality as we know it.
Three: Representation is a system of signs and meanings.
Four: Representations matter because they shape how people think about the world which in turn shapes how they act in the world.
Five: Representation processes in the mass society are institutionalised and routine.
Six: Some people have more power to shape representations.
