Primary Instructor:

What is television? More and more of us turn to entertainment content online, through subscription channels, and via digital recorders. Fewer of us are likely to watch content solely on a dedicated box in the living room. How must our understanding of television as a phenomenon grow and change? Have we seen "the end of television," or does it live on in a new form? Drawing on key concepts in the field of television studies (including flow, liveness, domesticity, convergence, complex TV, and audience reception), this class critically appraises the medium of television in our contemporary digital context. We investigate transformations in television production, genres, and audiences in response to new technologies and economies. By the end of the class we will decide whether "television" is still a meaningful term and, if so, how its meanings must expand to account for our changing televisual practices.
