MDIA-208 – Media Audiences
|Points:||20||Prerequisites:||As for MDIA 201|
|Faculty:||Humanities & Soc Sc||Corequisites:||None|
|School:||English, Film, Theatre, Media||Restrictions:||None|
In this course we address the most important theories and debates about media audiences. We focus on the cultural studies paradigm, which analyses media use in the context of everyday life and sees audience members as active interpreters of the media they consume. We will look at existing research into 'actual audiences' which analyses how particular identities (gender, race, age, sexuality) play a role in media consumption. We will introduce a diverse set of audience research methods. 100% internal assessment.
