Abstract [en]

Thepaper is based on an interdisciplinary empirical research project on theuse of fiction. Reader response/reception theories and discursive psychology (Edwards & Potter, 1992) are combined in theproject. The approach, called discursive reception studies (Eriksson Barajas& Aronsson, 2009), provides possibilities to analyse the role of socialinteraction in the co-construction of the experience of, in this case, a filmor a play. Thepaper deals with methodological issues: i) how to get access to ‘naturally’occurring practices around fiction – when people went to cafés after seeing afilm together and in the pause at the theatre; ii) how to record data in suchpractices; iii) how to use data collection methods and analysis methods adaptedto the type of data collected. One advantage with the used method for datacollection is that I have come across “dream participants” – that is correctmatch between participants and film content.
