The Audience Section invites submissions for its open sessions at the IAMCR to be held in Durban (South Africa) 2012 from July 15-19. The conference theme for 2012 is ‘South-North conversations’.

The Audience Section invites papers within this overall theme and which reflect the Section’s interest in new approaches and thinking to audience research in a global context. The Section encourages and aims to inspire greater interest in exploring and understanding audiences in diverse settings, and the contextualized power balances and imbalances that characterize these settings.

Embedded audiences
Resistant audiences, critical audiences, networked audiences
