'Sharing Experience' - Audiences in Media, Communication and Cultural

A MeCCSA Postgraduate Network symposium at the Department of Theatre,
and Television Studies, University of Wales, Aberystwyth

3rd - 4th April 2007

Audiences come in all shapes and forms - as viewers, listeners, readers,
users, participants, fans, aficionados and learners - focusing their
attention on a variety of sources within an increasingly changing media
landscape. The range and diversity of audiences and their experiences is
both exciting and challenging for researchers, and it is the very nature
of the field that requires a multitude of systematic approaches when
studying and teaching about audiences.

This training day aims to bring together postgraduate researchers
interested in the broad field of audience and reception studies, whether
this is in relation to contemporary or historical audiences, theoretical
empirical work, quantitative or qualitative studies, questions or
In addition to presenting and discussing their work in thematic panels,
there will be an opportunity for delegates to take part in workshops
concerned with 'how to do' and 'how to teach' audience and reception

Confirmed speakers include Professor Jenny Kitzinger (Cardiff School of
Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies) and Professor Martin Barker
(Department of Theatre, Film and Television Studies, Aberystwyth).

We welcome abstracts of 200 words to be sent to by 1st December 2006. Please also briefly
indicate why you would like to participate in this event, and what you
would hope to get out of it. In particular, we are interested to hear
about the issues of teaching and methodology that might become
relevant to
you in the process of your work.
