Abstract: Al Jazeera English is the Arab world’s largest purveyor of English language news to an international audience. This article provides an in-depth examination of how its Web site employs Web metrics for tracking and understanding audience behavior. The Al Jazeera Network remains sheltered from the general economic concerns around the news industry, providing a unique setting in which to understand how these tools influence newsroom production and knowledge-creation. Through interviews and observations, findings reveal that the news organization’s institutional culture plays a tremendous role in shaping how journalists use and understand metrics. The findings are interpreted through an analysis of news norms and a brief interlude into studies about the social construction of technology.

Abstract: The early modern London commercial theaters attracted playgoers from across the varied spectrum of religious practice and belief. Much recent scholarship on post-Reformation drama presupposes homogeneous audiences made up of conforming members of the Church of England. However, even the small sample of 260 theatergoers known to us by name evinces a far more diverse set of confessional characters: hot, lukewarm, and cold statute Protestants; recusant, church papist, and militant Catholics; avant-garde forerunners and Laudians; converts and serial converters; the conflicted and the confused. Yet, by illustrating the confessional diversity of early modern theatergoers, I do not mean to suggest that these various religious identity positions narrowly determined individual responses to plays. Rather, my interest is in the potential of dramatic form to orchestrate collective responses that cross sectarian divides, and facilitate imaginative experimentation with the fraught, heterogeneous materials of post-Reformation culture.

Abstract: One of the core challenges of current research on media use in digital media environments is to understand the scale and scope of ongoing changes as well as their wider societal and cultural implications. Building on the empirical, methodological, and organizational lessons of the 2013 EU COST Action study of European audiences, this final paper presents three considerations for future research. First, because some countries are ‘pioneers’ of internet diffusion, while others ‘lag behind,’ comparisons within and between countries also begin to suggest structural changes over time, to be addressed in further inquiry. Second, to identify such longitudinal changes, the EU study yielded a number of indicators, both at the country level and at the individual level, which may guide comparative designs in future research. Third, comparative audience studies are themselves a cross-cultural endeavor: in conclusion, the paper reflects on how to organize and fund sustainable cross-cultural research networks.

Abstract: It may be possible to enhance benefits of self-disclosure writing through adjusting online environments and thereby the perceptions of one’s audience. In a two-by-two experimental design, we examine effects of 1) establishing a shared identity between writers and audiences, and 2) enabling or disabling commenting. Results suggest that writers perceiving similar audiences showed more cognitive processing, while those led to expect comments wrote less about emotions. Audience similarity was associated with increased post-traumatic growth.

Abstract: Given the costs associated with providing healthcare to low health literate audiences, communicating information to low health literate individuals is an important issue. But with the continuous increasing complexity of health information, even those with adequate health literacy can appreciate simpler health communication. This project investigated the potential for two specially-tailored e-health interventions, designed to provide information to low health literate audiences, to deliver information to broader and more health literate audiences. These websites provided information through animated health providers, with supporting images and animations. Subjects approved of both websites’ designs, preferring the newer and more graphically appealing of the two. Respondents learned from both interventions, as measured by pre- and post-tests of knowledge. Participants did not exhibit significant preferences for animated health providers matching their own ethnicity, suggesting the importance of true cultural customization of content. Study results provide interesting implications for both health communication professionals and researchers.
