Reaching Young Audiences

The research project Reaching Young Audiences: Serial Fiction and Cross-Media Storyworlds for Children and Young Audiences (RYA) combines production and audience analysis when studying the current production and reception of film, TV and online fiction for children and young audiences. The project is based at the University of Copenhagen (with Associate Professor Eva Novrup Redvall as Project Leader) and runs from 2019–2024 (supported by Independent Research Fund Denmark).

The research project started by focusing on changes in the production of television fiction for children and young audiences, which has resulted in a number of blogs for CSTonline.

One of them is this blog from 2020 by Petar Mitric and Pia Majbritt Jensen which addresses the use of both film and television fiction by Danish children, ‘How do children watch fiction in Denmark and what content do they prefer?’ The project is currently also conducting research on children’s films will be announced on the website as it is published.
