[Persée.fr] Réseaux n°68 : Stuart Hall "Codage/décodage"

"Si la recherche en communications de masse a le plus souvent conceptualisé le processus de communication sous forme de circuit de circulation ou de boucle, il est néanmoins possible de l'appréhender comme une structure dominante complexe produite à travers l'articulation de divers moments liés et cependant distincts. A travers les mécanismes de communication télévisuelle, Stuart Hall analyse ici ces moments déterminés que sont le codage et le décodage des messages. Comment ces divers moments fonctionnent-ils? Quelles sont leurs valeurs par rapport à d'autres moments? Et, derrière ces multiples mécanismes, quels sont les enjeux à l'œuvre? "

What factors made the show a success?

What factors made the show a success? | Fancultures and bronies | Scoop.it
Yes, the show is amazing, but I think there's something much more about it that made it a success.

I'm going to write an article about MLP for a magazine (I'm hoping my editor authorizes it because I already wrote one), and I would appreciate your input.

So, aside from the high quality elements of the show (character development, writing, animation) are there any other factors that you think helped make the show a success? And if so, what are they?

Thanks in advance.
