Staiger (1992) notes that Fiske, building on Hartley, lists seven "subjectivity positions" that are important in cultural reception, "self, gender, age-group, family, class, nation, ethnicity," and proposes adding sexual orientation.

All of these factors, and no doubt more, interact in shaping how audiences receive and use texts and must be taken into account in studying cultural reception, for audiences decode and use texts according to the specific constituents of their class, race or ethnicity, gender, sexual preferences and so on.

Teenagers use video games and music television as an escape from the demands of a disciplinary society.

Males use sports as a terrain of fantasy identification, in which they feel empowered as "their" team or star triumphs.

But if we go with my belief, it’s murder.” “It’s not open to interpretation.” “Memory can be very faulty, Noah.

We all know that.” “Here’s how [White House press secretary] Sean Spicer explained ‘alternative facts’: One weather report says it’s going to be cloudy, another says it’s going to be light rain — no one lied to you.

Furthermore, I would warn against a tendency to romanticize the active audience, by claiming that all audiences produce their own meanings and denying that media culture may have powerful manipulative effects.

There is a tendency within the cultural studies tradition of reception research to dichotomize between dominant and oppositional readings (Hall, 1980b, a dichotomy which structures much of Fiske's work).

A Murder Ballad can be told from the perspective of the killer, the victim, or (most often) a third party observer.

It also directs focus on the actual political effects that texts have and how audiences use texts.

In fact, sometimes audiences subvert the intentions of the producers or managers of the cultural industries that supply them, as when astute young media users laugh at obvious attempts to hype certain characters, shows, or products (see de Certeau, 1984 for more examples of audiences constructing meaning and engaging in practices in critical and subversive ways).

I mean, we both agree about what happened, but we disagree about the meaning of the act.

Now, if we go with your interpretation of the truth, it’s mercy.

Yet there are several problems that I see with reception studies as they have been constituted within cultural studies, particularly in the U. First, there is a danger that class will be downplayed as a significant variable that structures audience decoding and use of cultural texts.
