Cavicchi publishes essay on “Audience History”

The latest issue of Reception: Texts, Readers, Audiences, History (Vol 6, 2014) features two essays by Daniel Cavicchi (Dean, Liberal Arts): “Fandom Before ‘Fan’: Shaping the History of Enthusiastic Audiences” and a review of Anahid Kassabian’s “Ubiquitous Listening: Affect, Attention, and Distributed Subjectivity.”

Reception: Texts, Readers, Audiences, History is a scholarly, peer-reviewed journal published once a year. It seeks to promote dialog and discussion among scholars engaged in theoretical and practical analyses in several related fields: reader-response criticism and pedagogy, reception study, history of reading and the book, audience and communication studies, institutional studies and histories, as well as interpretive strategies related to feminism, race and ethnicity, gender and sexuality, and postcolonial studies, focusing mainly but not exclusively on the literature, culture, and media of England and the United States.
