22 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and Manx and held by 2,680 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. This book offers a unique and comprehensive analysis of the latest research on contentrelated media harm and offence. For the first time, a balanced, critical account brings together findings on both established and newer interactive media. Arguing against asking simple questions about media effects, the case is made for contextualising media content and use within a multifactor, riskbased framework in order to guide future research and policy

"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

Making sense of television : the psychology of audience interpretation by Sonia M Livingstone( Book )

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 445 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 online opportunities and online risks, exploring this in relation to much debated issues such as: digital in/exclusion, learning and literacy, peer networking and privacy, civic participation, and risk and harm. Drawing on current theories of identity, development, education and participation, this book includes a refreshingly critical account of the challenging realities undermining the great expectations held out for the internet - from governments, teachers, parents and children themselves

Audiences and publics when cultural engagement matters for the public sphere by Sonia M Livingstone( )
7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 261 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
Mass consumption and personal identity : everyday economic experience by Peter K Lunt( Book )
8 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Meanings of audiences : comparative discourses by Richard Butsch( Book )
11 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 227 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"--
