Description - Living Room Wars by Ien Ang

This work brings together Ien Ang's recent writings on media audiences to ask what it means to live in a world saturated by media. What does our media audiencehood say about our everyday lives and social relations, and how does it illuminate the condition of contemporary culture?;The author suggests that we cannot understand media audiences without deconstructing the category of "audience" itself as an institutional and discursive construct. It aims to throw light on some of the complexities of media consumption in a postmodern world, including those related to gender politics and the globalization of culture.;The text points to the inherently contradictory nature of the media's role in shaping our identities, fantasies and pleasures, imbricated as they are in the exigencies of capitalist consumption and the institutions of the modern nation-state.
