This chapter argues that media education after the-media would be formed out of a flattened cultural hierarchy combined with a relativist pedagogy. This would arise out of the death of Media Studies as we know it but also the death of English, Art, Drama and all other 'subjects of text'. These will be replaced with a more reflexive pedagogy of the texture of mediated life. Doing Text means one removes 'the-media' from their field of reference and work instead on the-mediated storytelling of the self and their students' performative textual interactions across spaces and places. This volume provides teachers of Media, English, and other textual curricular with a set of interdisciplinary learning and teaching strategies for what might be called 'new pedagogies'.

Keywords:   media education, relativist pedagogy, Media Studies, reflexive pedagogy, mediated storytelling, learning strategies, teaching strategies, new pedagogies
