This seminar is being presented in conjunction with the international symposium Media Engagement: Connecting Production, Texts and Audiences, 4 May 2016, Boardroom, 309 Regent Street, London

Hosted by the University of Westminster in association with Lund University, and the Marianne and Marcus Wallenberg Foundation.

How do people engage with media, such as television drama, twitter feeds, or reality entertainment? Media engagement is a broad term for research into how we experience media content, artefacts and events, from our experience of live performances, to social media engagement, or participation in media itself. Media engagement offers a rich site of analysis for exploring the dispersed connections across industry contexts, cultural forms, and audience experiences.
