Audiences are problematic and the study of audiences has represented a key site of activity in the social sciences and humanities. Offering a timely review of the past 50 years of theoretical and methodological debate Audiences argues the case for a paradigmatic shift in audience research.

Chapters 4 and 5 look at the practical aspects of proposing and carrying out research projects using these approaches. Cheek concludes by reviewing the "intellectural journey" required in coming to grips with the meaning and application of these approaches, and she suggests ways in which the reader can continue to grow in his or her pursuit."--BOOK JACKET.
