Abstract: This article gives the way for hermeneutic analysis of cultural context - the study of the process of interpretation of media texts, cultural and historical factors influencing the views of the agency / author on the media text. The hermeneutical analysis suggests media text comprehension through comparison with historical, cultural tradition and reality; penetration of its logic; through comparison of media images in historical and cultural context by combining historical, hermeneutical analysis of the structural, plot, ethical, ideological, iconographic / visual, media stereotypes and analysis of media text characters. Example of this hermeneutic analysis of cultural context is analysis the media texts about the life of famous publicist Yaroslav Galan (1902-1949). An analysis of this kind of media texts, in our opinion, is particularly important for media literacy education of future historians, culture and art historians, sociologists, linguists, psychologists and educators.
Abstract: This paper takes a critical look towards burgeoning studies of post-national citizenship. Contrary to the spreading optimism that post-national citizenship might complement or even supersede national citizenship, this paper argues that such hopes were premature and misleading, based on the idealist understanding of the world and ignoring the contemporary realities. Taking the EU as an example, practical and ideological problems and difficulties are identified which highlight concrete limitations of post-national citizenship.
