Example text

The professionalization of self-authorship is not a new phenomenon in itself. , Jean-Pierre L´eaud in Masculin-F´eminin (1966)).

Help is available, not only to present positive role models (often celebrities), but also to teach us the limits beyond which a well-governed self cannot go, often personified by reality TV contestants.

Readers (users) are productive of meanings, interpretations and uses for text, none of which is causally connected to the person or even the function of the author. Instead, discourses or textual systems – complex dynamic languagenetworks – could be said to ‘‘speak us’’ even as we speak them. Here, as Barthes and Foucault saw, the meaning of a given work – its interpretation in the mind of the reader – is no longer determined by an author; it is an effect of the system, in which both author and reader are agents, and where the system itself imposes the rules of the game.
