Media Engagement: Connecting Production, Texts and Audiences
International Symposium Wallenberg Foundation, Lund University and University of Westminster
This symposium provides a platform for research on new terms of media engagement. We want to understand industrial contexts for engagement, including performance metrics, production practices and policy discourses. And we want to understand people’s shifting and subjective relations with media as live audiences, catch up viewers, illegal users, citizens and consumers, fans and anti-fans, contestants and participants. Media engagement thus encapsulates research on audiences, fans or producer-users, and the ways these different groups co-exist with those making content and driving policy and politics. The aim of the symposium is to investigate how industrial contexts, producers and audiences co-create, shape and limit experiences within emerging mediascapes.
- Industrial contexts for engagement: production practices, policy discourses and stakeholder coalitions
- Empirical production and audience research: quantitative and qualitative methods and practices Audience experiences and engagement: affect, emotion and passion
- Fans and anti-fans: labour and fan practices
- Unmeasured audience: informal media economies and illegal practices
