Jean Baudrillard and the Limits of Critical Media Literacy
Kline, Kip
Educational Theory, v66 n5 p641-656 Oct 2016
Marxian education scholars have successfully established critical media literacy as a specific response to concerns about contemporary media's problems and possibilities with regard to youth. This development has made a significant contribution to the intersection of media, critical theory, and pedagogy. Yet, the theoretical foundations of critical media literacy limit its capacity to confront the trajectory of contemporary media and communication technologies. Here, Kip Kline offers Jean Baudrillard's media theory as a possible corrective to the undertheorization of media at the level of form that contributes to the inefficacy of critical media literacy.
