Audiences in Film and Media Studies, 7.5 Credits

In this module, students read and discuss key texts about audiences in media- and film studies. This involves tracing the paradigm shift that has taken place in which the concept of “audience” has changed from being constructed as an ideologically influenced passive spectator to become an active and potentially resistant viewer. Different perspectives on audiences further include fans, gendered audiences, the construction of audiences in relation to nation and ethnicity, as well as contemporary internet audiences.
