International cinema, comedy, and online film and media practices: audience research at PARTICIPATIONS

Frame grab from A Clockwork Orange (Stanley Kubrick, 1971). You can read about audience responses to this film in Peter Krämer’s excellent article ‘‘Movies that make people sick’: Audience Responses to Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange in 1971/72’

Film Studies For Free takes to the blogwaves today to shout out about a truly excellent issue of the Open Access, and openly refereed, international audience research journal Participations.

It’s a bumper issue with 27 articles – an advantage of an online journal format over its offline, paper-bound relatives, as editor Martin Barker outlines in his interesting introduction to this issue.

FSFF particularly appreciated the section on international film audiences, and also especially enjoyed Inger-Lise Kalviknes Bore’s study ‘Reviewing Romcom: (100) IMDb Users and (500) Days of Summer‘ and also Anne Collins Smith and Owen M. Smith’s article on ‘Pragmatism and Meaning: Assessing the Message of Star Trek: The Original Series’.
