'I Didn't Get It, But I Liked the Name' : Generational Profiling Through Generation X

Sternberg, Jason S. (2002) 'I Didn't Get It, But I Liked the Name' : Generational Profiling Through Generation X. In Balnaves, Mark, O'Regan, Tom, & Sternberg, Jason S. (Eds.) Mobilising the Audience. University of Queensland Press, St Lucia, QLD, pp. 81-103.


"Mobilising the Audience" is the first comprehensive integration of industry and academic audience research in Australia. Introducing new directions in method and analysis, this contemporary probe into 'audience-making' illustrates the ways marketers, producers and governments mobilise an audience. Included are case studies of Generation X, computer gaming, the child audience, TV ratings, Aboriginal media, and Asian community television. Such a diverse range provides real life contexts for students, professionals and industry workers, introducing them to the critical links between research about media audiences and use of that research in making decisions about policy and content. Readers will be interested, too, in the significance of geo-demographics in public opinion polls, and the influence of audience in the shaping of our cultural institutions.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
