    Abstract

    Adult educators have generally been interested in two aspects of the role of film and
    television fiction. First, there is a growing literature on using these media within
    conventional pedagogical situations (Thompson, 2007). This includes examining
    their potential as tools that teachers use to raise awareness of social and political
    issues and enable students to imagine a range of experiences and possibilities. It
    also incorporates the development of critical media literacy, whereby students learn
    to recognize the way ideas are constructed, reflected and reproduced. Guy, for
    example, perceives the ‘corrosive and dehumanizing messages of popular culture’
    (2007:19) and explores the importance of classroom practices that develop
    frameworks for critique. Coming, in contrast, from a Jungian perspective, Dirkx
    examines the significance of the emotions in transformative learning and notes how
    this ‘may be fostered through the selective use of fiction, poetry and movies’
    (2006:23).
