Mobilising The Audience

Author: Mark Balnaves   Tom O-Regan   Jason Sternberg  

"Mobilising the Audience" is the first comprehensive integration of industry and academic audience research in Australia. Introducing new directions in method and analysis, this contemporary probe into 'audience-making' illustrates the ways marketers, producers and governments mobilise an audience. Included are case studies of Generation X, computer gaming, the child audience, TV ratings, Aboriginal media, and Asian community television. Such a diverse range provides real life contexts for students, professionals and industry workers, introducing them to the critical links between research about media audiences and use of that research in making decisions about policy and content. Readers will be interested, too, in the significance of geo-demographics in public opinion polls, and the influence of audience in the shaping of our cultural institutions.
