Audience and Reception Studies
The Audience and Reception Studies Section intends to organise a strong network for European research and education in the field of audience and reception studies.
The section welcomes various approaches (theoretical/critical works, methodological discussions or empirical studies) and methods (quantitative or qualitative research, or both) and encourages works that cross disciplines and traditional boundaries (between “old media” and “new media”; between mass communication, group communication and interpersonal communication; between content/production and audience/reception).
