Twilight: Discourse theory and Jung

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

Seeking to find points of intersection between a Jungian Approach and other modes of cultural analysis, this chapter explores the relationship between analytical psychology and discourse theory. The core of the argument is concern with the way the meaning of any film must be negotiated in terms of personal and social contexts. It concludes with a case study of The Twilight Saga in which the different theoretical approaches can be deployed to provide a compelling interpretation of a multi-media cultural phenomena.
