Stuart Hall (sociologist)
Human beings created a world of messages and meanings and continue to create new ones to look for the meaning of life. In order to communicate with each other and leave their stories for the new generation, humans have been using the power of images and symbols since the beginning of the human history. It is this greatest purpose — communication — that makes human beings to construct their system of signs and symbols — their language — to make the world meaningful. This essay is an attempt to deal, in general, with question of representation — the production of meaning through language. In first part of the essay we define, shortly, three theories of representation, with the main focus on the constructionist theory. In the second part we will show how the constructionist approach has to do with representation, the relationship between them. And, in third part we will explain the importance that these theories have in relation with communication.
Words mean only what their author intends them to mean. According to Hall:. However, it is not the material world which conveys meaning: it is the language system or whatever system we are using to represent our concepts. It is social actors who use the conceptual systems of their culture and the linguistic and other representational systems to construct meaning, to make the world meaningful and to communicate about that world meaningfully to others. In a culture, language tends to operate across larger units of analysis — narratives, statements, groups of images, and whole discourses which operate across a variety of texts and areas of knowledge Hall,
Representation, meaning, and language

To create deliberate anti-stereotypes is still to attempt to fix the meaning albeit in a different way.
