Masterclass Series: Readerships and reception

NATIONAL CENTRE FOR AUSTRALIAN STUDIES
SCHOOL OF JOURNALISM, AUSTRALIAN & INDIGENOUS STUDIES
presents

‘READERSHIPS AND RECEPTION’

A MASTERCLASS SERIES

Reception and the negotiation of meaning are key concerns in the field
of cultural production, particularly in relation to authorship,
publishing, journalism, television and now digital media. This
Masterclass Series will concentrate on the ways in which we understand
the activity of readers and audiences and the ways they make sense of
cultural products. We will consider them spatially, temporally and
materially, and will cut across a range of reception practices from
in-depth reading to online browsing. How can we as researchers engage
with these changing forms and practices of readership? What might we
gain by bringing together insights from different media and contexts
of reception? These Masterclasses bring together an illustrious,
interdisciplinary panel of Australian and international experts to
address these questions.

MASTERCLASS ONE: Friday 30th March 2012

‘The Persistent Audience’


‘To counter the Jay Rosen proposal that what we are dealing with now
is “the people formerly known as the audience” - at least in theory
and approach!’

Prof. Sue Turnbull (University of Wollongong)

When: Friday 30th March 2012 (9.30am – 4.00pm) Where: The Wheeler
