. The empirical study of literature and the media. Current approaches and perspectives.
Susanne Janssen en Nel van Dijk (red.).
How do readers become involved in reading? What makes present-day readership different from readership in the eighteenth century? What are the functions of literature in a specofic society, and how do these functions change over time? How could book X be rejected when it appeared and nevertheless become a classic, whereas book Y was initially well received only to fall into oblivion later? It was not until the 1970s that such questions were seriously tackled by what is now referred to as theempirical study of literature. This challenging field of study unites scholars from a variety of disciplines - psychology, media and communication research, literary and cultural studies, sociology, pedagogics, text linguistics and literary history. They share a common interest in the empirical study of literature and exchange ideas and results through the institutional framework of the International Society for the Empirical Study of Literature (IGEL). In the past decade, research by IGEL-associated scholars has gone beyond written texts, since the most urgent questions in modern society concern the use and effects of a variety of media: How are people motivated and affected by these media? What are the short-term and long-term effects? How do the media change the way we deal with fiction? Et cetera.
This volume reflects the interdisciplinary character of the empirical study of literature, and its focus on the production, mediation, reception and post-processing of literary texts and other media offerings. Based on affinity with the work they have done in their own substantive area of empirical literary studies, seven eminent scholars were invited to prepare a chapter for this book: Els Andringa (The empirical study of literature: Its development and future), Wendy Griswold and Kathleen Hull (The burnished steel watch: What a sample of a single year's fiction indicates), Bettina Hurrelmann (Media in the everyday family life), Joost Kloek (Reconsidering the revolution), Keith Oatley (Meetings of minds) and Siegfried J. Schmidt (How to balance open accounts: Some requirements for a further development of the mpirical study of literature). Together their contributions give a vivid picture of current approaches and research interests in the empirical study of literature and the media, and they address the main developments, issues and perspectives in this dynamic field of research.

. Trends and strategies in the arts and cultural industries. A selection of papers presented at The Long Run, an international conference on long-term developments in the arts and cultural industries.
K. Ernst, M. Halbertsma and S. Janssen (editors).
Is empirical research on the arts and cultural industries by epistemological necessity focused on what's happening here and now, or what happened there and then? Are we condemned to scrutinise the world as it is, without taking notice of the heavenly shelters above us or the storms that gather in the distance? These questions provoked the Department for the Study of the Arts and Culture at Erasmus University Rotterdam to organise an international conference on long-term developments in the arts and cultural industries, The Long Run, in February 2000. Taking stock of what seem to be major concerns of hostorians, sociologists and economists studying the arts and cultural industries these days, three areas of interest in long-term developments are identified. Globalisation is definitely the most important issue, measured by the number of references. Shifting boundaries between state and market constitute another major area of interest in contemporary research. Developments leading to and beyond modernism are discussed in the third part of this volume. In the final part, the question of strategy is raised: how do actors - e.g. individual artists, companies in the music industry, and governments - respond to present conditions and long term developments, re-shaping the past and shaping the future of the arts and cultural industries? This volume features contributions of four keynote speakers to the conference and a selection of other papers. Richard A. Peterson analyses changing patterns in cultural consumption. Jesus P. Lorente examines the meaning of museums of contemporary art in pre-modern, modern and post-modern urban culture, Helmut K. Anheier makes a comparative analysis of the scale and structure of non-profit activity in Europe. David Throsby reflects on the concept of economic and cultural value in the working lives of creative artists.
