Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Atkinson, Bellis, and Sumnall's (2013) stimulating report remindsus that there are mixed messages about alcohol in the media and mixed responses in the audience. Importantly, their work shows that even young (in this case adolescent) viewers are capable of identifying contradictins, biases and gaps in the representations to which everyday media use will expose them.
