"THEME_1"Visual representation of social reality in television news.
The ideology of news production includes claims of 'objectivity' and 'truthfulness'; does a visual semiotic analysis of the images presented by news broadcasters undermine or support these claims?
"THEME_2"Development of visual semiotic theories appropriate to the analysis and understanding of realistic, time-based media such as television news.
Visual semiotic theory, developed in the social semiotics tradition, does not adequately deal with many aspects of meaning-making in time-based visuals, thus more work is needed to extend the ideas behind visual semiotic thinking and to test these ideas against a range of texts/data.
"THEME_3"Japan's mass industry
The context for production of the images I consider is the particular 'regime of production' which obtains within the media-system in Japan.
In order to understand why images take on the form they do, to some extent, it is also necessary to understand the working practices of image-producers and the structures which inform their working activities.
Visual Semiotics of Television News

 My research is aimed at improving the theoretical basis of visual semiotic analyses of time-based visual media, particularly television. My major source of data is the images of television news programs in Japan and the UK though I also attempt to take into account the importance of regimes of production and the 'real-world' nature of producing television news. Thus my research has also extended to working with camera operators and video editors in order to investigate their conceptions of their work and to try to elucidate the unwritten rules which underpin the 'craft' of news camerawork.
