To what extent do African-American families interpret their favourite TV show differently from their white neighbours? Are romance novels and teenage magazines reactionary fantasies or do they provide women with an important space of their own?

The Audience Studies Reader brings together key writings and research exploring questions of reception and interpretation. Beginning with a general introduction to the Reader, each extract is placed in its historical context with specially written section prefaces and suggestions for further reading. Organized chronologically and thematically, sections address: the paradigm shift - from effects to uses and gratifications- moral panic and censorship- the active audience and reading as resistance- shifts in screen theory - the spectator and the audience- the fan and the audience- female audiences- and nation and ethnicity.

The conclusion discusses the effects of internet overflow and the increased level of interactivity it seems to offer.
