Title Love Relationships in Serialised Fiction. Audiovisual Language and Social Imaginary Summary This research project studies, among Master's students of the Institute of Education of the University of London, the knowledge that affects their interpretation of the representation of love relationships in televised fiction series. The theoretical framework is the work of the research group RETEVIS (Medina et al., 2008; Aran, Medina, Rodrigo, 2010), and the authors argue for a concept of media education (Buckingham, 2003) which goes beyond mere literacy in audiovisual "grammar". From interviews and focus groups, we observe the effectiveness of the knowledge of media language in the production of analytical and critical discourse about scenic devices and stereotyped contents, and a demand for new models for love in fiction programmes. Keywords Television, Media Literacy, Love, Social Imaginaries, Interpretation.
