Abstract


The COST-Action will coordinate research efforts into the key transformations of European audiences within a changing media and communication environment, identifying their complex interrelationships with the social, cultural and political areas of European societies. Four interconnected but distinct topics will be developed: New media genres, media literacy and trust in the media / audience interactivity and participation / the role of media for evolving social relationships / audience transformation and social integration.
