Example text

Among the responses to the post-modern was the addition of a new emphasis within advertising studies; this involved thinking about audiences, not in the abstract, but as ‘live’, ‘active’ spectators. So academics began (more concertedly from the 1980s onwards) to talk to (and not just about) those whose role in life was to ‘receive’, ‘decode’, 1111 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 2 3111 4 5 6 7 8111 9 20 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 30111 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 39 40 41 4211 ‘be positioned by’ and variously take in advertising ‘texts’.

The array of ‘products’ on the market, and the images and ideas represented in advertising are objects in this sense – but market exchange is perhaps not a sufficient measure of the interchange Milner describes. These terms (subject and object) are perhaps alien to most discussion about advertising, which has existed primarily in the discourses of commerce and economics (which operate with quite complex but certain understandings of the relations between people, advertising and products).
