Abstract

The media create and shape everyday reality, influence people’s perceptions and behaviours by constantly using and re-using stereotyped imagery. They ‘constitute a decisive universe of discourses that create values, attitudes and judgements with respect to our social, cultural and political environment’ (Nash, 2004:57). They are also implicated in the politics of representation of migrants by constructing the dominant discourses and narratives of migrant communities. This paper explores how the identities of female migrant hospitality workers from Central and Eastern European (CEE) nations are constructed in the Channel 4 docusoap ‘The Hotel’ (Series 1).
