Perverse spectators : the practices of film reception by Janet Staiger( Book )

13 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 545 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Film and television have never been as prevalent or watched than they are now, yet we still have little understanding of how people process and make use of what they see. Though we acknowledge the enormous role the media plays in our culture, we only have a vague sense of how it actually influences our attitudes and desires. In this work, Janet Staiger argues that studying the interpretative methods of spectators within their historical contexts is both possible and necessary to understand the role the media plays in culture and in our personal lives. This analytical approach is applied to top
Media reception studies by Janet Staiger( Book )

13 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Media Reception Studies broadly surveys the past century of scholarship on the ways in which audiences make meaning out of mass media. Written for students and scholars seeking an introductory map to this body of theory and research, it synthesizes in plain language social scientific, linguistic, and cultural studies approaches to film and television as communication media. Janet Staiger tranverses a broad terrain, covering the Chicago School, early psychological approaches, Soviet theory, the Frankfurt School, mass communication research and critical theory, linguistics and semiotic theory, social-psychoanalytical research, cognitive psychology, and cultural studies. She offers these theories as a set of tools for understanding the complex relationships between films and thier audiences, TV shows and their viewers. The reader is then guided in their application to such questions as the behavior of fans, the implications of race with regard to media, the effect of violence, horror, and sexually explicit images on viewers, and the place of memory in spectatorship. Providing an organized and lucid introduction to a staggering amount of work, Media Reception Studies is an indispensable resource for anyone interested in understanding the effects of mass media. -- from back cover

Convergence media history by Janet Staiger( Book )

16 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Convergence Media History explores the ways that digital convergence has radically changed the field of media history. Writing media history is no longer a matter of charting the historical development of an individual medium such as film or television. Instead, now that various media from blockbuster films to everyday computer use intersect regularly via convergence, scholars must find new ways to write media history across multiple media formats. This collection of eighteen new essays by leading media historians and scholars examines the issues today in writing media history and histories. Each essay addresses a single medium -- including film, television, advertising, sound recording, new media, and more -- and connects that specific medium's history to larger issues for the field in writing multi-media or convergent histories. Among the volume's topics are new media technologies and their impact on traditional approaches to media history; alternative accounts of film production and exhibition, with a special emphasis on film across multiple media platforms; the changing relationships between audiences, fans, and consumers within media culture; and the globalization of our media culture."--Book cover
Blockbuster TV : must-see sitcoms in the network era by Janet Staiger( Book )

15 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Archie Bunker. Jed. Laverne and Shirley. Cliff Huxtable. Throughout the entire history of American prime-time television only four sitcoms have been true blockbusters, with Nielsen ratings far above the second- and third-rated programs.

The wild popularity of these shows-- All in the Family, The Beverly Hillbillies, Laverne & Shirley (and its partner Happy Days), and The Cosby Show --left commentators bewildered by the tastes and prefer
Political emotions by Janet Staiger( Book )

17 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Political Emotions explores the contributions that the study of discourses, rhetoric, and framing of emotion make to understanding the public sphere, civil society and the political realm. Tackling critiques on the opposition of the public and private spheres, chapters in this volume examine why some sentiments are valued in public communication while others are judged irrelevant, and consider how sentiments mobilize political trajectories. Emerging from the work of the Public Feelings research group at the University of Texas-Austin, and cohering in a New Agendas in Communication symposium, th
