Examiner comments


“This thesis... exceeds the requirements for the award of the degree ... It shows mastery of the relevant literature; critical understanding of the theoretical, conceptual and analytical issues arising from this field of scholarship; and it makes an original and significant contribution to scholarship, both in the development of a novel conceptual framework and in the extensive collection of well-chosen evidential data and analysis.” - Distinguished Professor John Hartley


“This is an exemplary thesis... an excellent work of scholarship ... [which deploys]  a complex array of theory (including anthropology, philosophy, and psychology as well as media and cultural studies).” - Professor Sue Turnbull


“It was a pleasure to read this thesis. I don’t mean this as a casual aphorism but as a literal statement – I thoroughly enjoyed the two days I spent reading it. It is beautifully written and packed with primary evidence... Also, this thesis made me laugh out loud ... which, as far as I can remember, is a first.” – Professor Alan McKee
