How is Stuart hall's theory on representation and meaning different from earlier theories?

Until Hall: representation was the depiction of an event after it happened; Representation was fixed and interpretation was considered by many to be impossible

Hall’s theory: representation as part of the event; “Thing” must be interpreted and the meaning is not fixed. language plays an important role because it “externalizes” the meaning

Things become meaningful through the process of signification

Meaning can never be fixed and needs to be seen in context

BICS

Decoding: is the ability to transfer and read these messages critically

→”coined” meaning by the media can differ from “true meaning”
