Research methodologies on how to Decolonise Advertising is presented by Carl Jones at Global semiotic Conference held online in Colombia.
On Saturday September 25th scholar Carl Jones presented his semiotic research methods at the Second International meeting of Young & Early Career semioticians IASS-AIS as part of the X International Congress of Semiotics of Colombia ASC, and the Colloquium 30 Years Master in Semiotics UIS.
Jones focussed on two research methods, one of Visual Social Semiotics and the second is Content Analysis. Inorder to explore the ‘Visual representations of the power relationships in Mexico’s political economy as expressed in 2D advertising’ and how these relationships can be resisted through analysis of secondary messaging and further regulation.
Jones concludes that “the power representations that are presented through 2D advertising is the cultivated myth of the light-skinned ruling class. This translated into advertising that features light skinned actors, creating a myth that white is better, and therefore aspirational to consumers. Leading to the discussion on why advertising needs to be decolonized”.
The Senior Lecturer of PR and Advertising at the School of Media and Communication was part of a panel called SEMIOTICS, MARKETING AND ADVERTISING.
The conference runs on Saturdays in September and early October and the full programme can be seen here https://www.canva.com/design/DAEmepaWbBA/4D32I100f5H2jCgcnMbJvg/view?utm_content=DAEmepaWbBA&utm_campaign=designshare&utm_medium=link&utm_source=sharebutton&fbclid=IwAR0qIyUZ6EAHUKDvHjUnPmDP98dPhe6_YER_e_NyTyIIysOLTYsT7tZ05RA
University of Westminster Senior Lecturer, and CAMRI Scholar, Carl W. Jones has written an article for the Mexican Zapatista freedom movement ‘Camino al Andar’ exploring the causes of racism and classism in Mexico. The article form part of Camino al Andar’s response to the Mexican government’s refusal to provide passports to some members of the Zapatista delegation who aimed to travel to Europe to attend meetings that mark the 500th anniversary of the 1519-1521 conquest of Mexico. The refusal of passports is seen by many as being an attack on the individuals indigenous status.
