Abstract [en]

The consumer culture of late modernity, the gender system, and the concept of the model reader are taken as points of departure for the analysis of identities offered in Swedish magazine ads. The model readers are regarded as socially motivated identities that are offered to the empirical readers of the ads. On the one hand, the model readers are treated as textual realisations of the consumer culture and the gender system and, on the other, as varying with respect to target group. The multimodal textual composition of the ads as well as ideational and interpersonal meanings are analysed along with intertextual and interdiscursive relations.

One major result is that the model readers in the ads with male target groups tend to be already active, successful and leadership-oriented, whereas model readers in ads with female target groups tend to be more passive, and need the product to adjust or improve themselves.
