Harm and offence in media content a review of the evidence by Andrea Millwood Hargrave ( )
20 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and Manx and held by 2,559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In today's media and communications environment, pressing questions arise regarding the media's potential for harm, especially in relation to children.

Young people and new media childhood and the changing media environment by Sonia M Livingstone ( )
20 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 1,535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Combining a comprehensive literature review with original empirical research on young people's use of new media, this book provides a fresh and in-depth discussion of the increasingly complex relationship between the media and childhood, the family and the home." "We can no longer imagine our daily lives without media and communication technologies. At the start of the 21st century, the home is being transformed into the site of a multimedia culture. This book looks at the discussions around the potential benefits of this new media and asks: What impact are the new media having on childhood and adolescence? Are these technologies changing the nature of young people's leisure and sociability? And has the participation of children in private and public life changed?"--Jacket
Audiences and publics when cultural engagement matters for the public sphere by Sonia M Livingstone ( )
13 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In today's thoroughly mass-mediated world, audiences and publics are, of course, composed of the same people. Yet social science traditionally treats them quite differently. Indeed, it is commonplace to define audiences in opposition to the public: in both popular and elite discourses, audiences are denigrated as trivial, passive, individualised, while publics are valued as active, critically engaged and politically significant

Making sense of television : the psychology of audience interpretation by Sonia M Livingstone ( Book )
33 editions published between 1989 and 2013 in English and held by 820 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Taking the soap opera as a case study, this book explores the "parasocial interaction" people engage in with television programs. It looks at the nature of the "active viewer" and the role of the text in social psychology. It also investigates the existing theoretical models offered by social psychology and other discourses. This second edition takes into account recent research work and theoretical developments in fields such as narrative psychology, social representation theory and ethnographic work on audiences, and looks at the developing role of audience research. --Publisher

Children and the Internet : great expectations, challenging realities by Sonia M Livingstone ( Book )
16 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Is the internet really transforming children and young people's lives? Is the so-called 'digital generation' genuinely benefiting from exciting new opportunities? And, worryingly, facing new risks? This major new book by a leading researcher addresses these pressing questions. It deliberately avoids a techno-celebratory approach and, instead, interprets children's everyday practices of internet use in relation to the complex and changing historical and cultural conditions of childhood in late modernity. Uniquely, Children and the Internet reveals the complex dynamic between

Media consumption and public engagement : beyond the presumption of attention by Nick Couldry ( Book )
30 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Governments in many countries fear voting turnout and political engagement is in terminal decline, threatening the long-term legitimacy of the democratic process. Meanwhile definitions of politics and the public world are changing, while media formats are proliferating and media audiences fragmenting in the age of digital media. How are these important trends related? And what do our everyday habits of consuming media contribute to our possibilities of being effective citizens? Nick Couldry, Sonia Livingstone and Tim Markham address these questions in their pathbreaking new book based on research into the 'Future of Public Connection'. The book reports their findings and explains highly original methodology, involving people across England producing diaries for three months tracking their perspective on the public world. The book includes interviews, a nationwide survey and an authoritative review of the current literature on democratic theory, political sociology and media audiences. The result is a major assessment of the difference that media, and our ways of living with media, make to the condition of democracy
Kids online : opportunities and risks for children by Sonia M Livingstone ( Book )
9 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
As children spend more time online there are increasing questions about its social implications and consequences. The risks they face and the proposed solutions are all subject to continual change.

Children, risk and safety on the internet : research and policy challenges in comparative perspective by Sonia M Livingstone ( Book )
15 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"As internet use is extending to younger children, there is an increasing need for research focus on the risks young users are experiencing, as well as the opportunities, and how they should cope. With expert contributions from diverse disciplines and a uniquely cross-national breadth, this timely book examines the prospect of enhanced opportunities for learning, creativity and communication set against the fear of cyberbullying, pornography and invaded privacy by both strangers and peers. Based on an impressive in-depth survey of 25,000 children carried out by the EU Kids Online network, it offers wholly new findings that extend previous research and counter both the optimistic and the pessimistic hype. It argues that, in the main, children are gaining the digital skills, coping strategies and social support they need to navigate this fast-changing terrain. But it also identifies the struggles they encounter, pinpointing those for whom harm can follow from risky online encounters. Each chapter presents new findings and analyses to inform both researchers and students in the social sciences and policy makers in government, industry or child welfare who are working to enhance children's digital experiences."--Provided by publisher
Meanings of audiences : comparative discourses by Richard Butsch ( Book )
9 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In today's thoroughly mediated societies people spend many hours in the role of audiences, and powerful organizations, including governments, corporations and schools, reach people via the media. Consequently, how people think about, and organizations treat, audiences has considerable significance. This ground-breaking collection offers original, empirical studies of discourses about audiences as it brings together a genuinely international range of work. With essays on audiences in Ancient Greece, Post-Soviet Russia, post-colonial Zimbabwe, contemporary Egypt, China and Taiwan, each chapter examines the ways in which audiences are embedded in discourses of power, representation and regulation in different yet overlapping ways according to specific socio-historical contexts. Suitable for both undergraduate and postgraduate students, this book is a valuable and original contribution to media and communication studies that will be particularly useful to those studying audience and international media"--
