A Queer Critical Media Literacies Framework in a Digital Age
Leent, Lisa; Mills, Kathy
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v61 n4 p401-411 Jan-Feb 2018
Media literacy skills are focal for many educators across the globe in an age of ubiquitous access to the Internet and the rapid circulation of digital texts. A critical media literacies perspective is often a key element in teaching adolescents to read a range of texts. A queer critical media literacies pedagogy supports a social justice agenda aimed at addressing inequalities in education for youths who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, and queer (LGBTQ+), with the + accounting for other identities, such as asexual, agender, and questioning. Queer theories provide the basis of a new pedagogical model aimed at empowering educators to guide young adolescents in identity formation as they navigate a range of content. The model is presented as a queer critical media literacies framework aimed at directly supporting the work of teachers in classrooms, including illustrative key questions, learning experiences, and related teaching resources.
