Audience Studies Reader by Will Brooker

Book Description

The Audience Studies Reader brings together key writings exploring questions of reception and interpretation, reprinting forgotten pieces and combining key essays with new research. Beginning with a general introduction to the Reader, each extract is placed in its historical context with specially written section prefaces and suggestions for further reading. Organized chronologically and thematically, sections address: the paradigm shift - from 'effects' to 'uses and gratifications'; moral panic and censorship; the active audience and reading as resistance; shifts in screen theory - the spectator and the audience; the fan and the audience; female audiences; nation and ethnicity. Essays by: Theodor Adorno, Ien Ang, Camille Bacon-Smith, Jacqueline Bobo, Martin Barker, Michel de Certeau, Dawn Currie, Barbara Ehrenreich, John Fiske, George Gerbner, Marie Gillespie, Larry Gross, Sara Gwenllian-Jones, Miriam Hansen, Richard Hoggart, Henry Jenkins, Sut Jhally, Elihu Katz, Paul F. Lazarsfeld, Justin Lewis, Tamar Liebes, Angela McRobbie, Robert Merton, David Morley, David Muggleton, Laura Mulvey, Janice Radway, Philip Schlesinger, Esther Sonnet, Jackie Stacey, Frederic Wertham, Charles Winick and Gregory Woods

Many More Lives of the Batman by Will Brooker Many More Lives of the Batman, Paperback (August 2015)

The Many Lives of the Batman (1991) was a pioneer within cultural and comic book scholarship. This fresh new sequel retains the best of the original chapters but also includes images, new chapters and new contributions from the Batman writers and editors.

Hunting the Dark Knight by Will Brooker Hunting the Dark Knight, Paperback (May 2012)

Explores Batman's twenty-first century incarnations. This title features analysis of "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight" that offers an account of the complex relationship between popular films, audiences, and producers in our age of media convergence.

'Star Wars' by Will Brooker 'Star Wars', Paperback (July 2009)

Will Brooker provides a close analysis of 'Star Wars' as a film and argues that it represented a continuation rather than a departure from director George Lucas's early, experimental work. Brooker argues that Lucas is drawn both to the order and control of the Empire, and the energy and creativity of the Rebels.
