The Division in Audience Studies is a platform for researchers who have their focus on the people in the media landscape, be it audiences, users, publics, or participants. The Audience Studies division is open to various approaches (theoretical/critical works, methodological discussions or empirical studies) and methods (quantitative, qualitative, mixed methods).

We welcome researchers who feel that the concept of audiences deserves a distinctly cross-disciplinary and cross-media approach where audiences can be considered both medium-specific as well as beyond any given medium and disciplinary boundaries. We invite studies which help to understand how changes in medium (like TV, radio, social media service, newspaper etc.) influence us as audiences, as well as studies that seek to understand the mutual shaping where the changing viewer, listener or user, producer practices also changes the medium. These kinds of mutual relationships provide a focus for our research.

We welcome research which addresses the ways in which audiences engage with the digital media landscape and negotiate the challenges of platformization and datafication, as well as research that look at audiences that transcend mediums and follow information and entertainment flows across platforms. These kinds of mobilities and cross-media audience practices result in theoretical and methodological challenges that can be addressed in the division discussions. We look forward to papers that address audiences both as individual practices worth investigating as well as global changes challenged by media environments.

Audience Division Chair: Pille Pruulmann-Vengerfeldt

Co-chairs: Kim Christian Schrøder, Annette Hill, Marika Lüders
