Summary
"Popular Media Cultures seeks to explore the relationship between audiences and media texts, their paratexts and interconnected ephemera, and the related cultural practices that add to and expand the narrative worlds with which fans engage. The book discusses how audiences make meaning out of established media texts such as Doctor Who, Made in Chelsea and Star Trek, the Sherlock Holmes and Harry Potter franchises, and infamous examples of the horror genre by writing and creating new ones. Authors focus on the cultural work done by media audiences, how they engage with new technologies and how convergence culture impacts on the strategies and activities of popular media fans. This collection brings together leading academics in the fields of film, television, fan and cultural studies to open up and take further the debates surrounding popular media, its producers, its audiences, and the cultures in which they are ultimately located"--
