40-3213 Studies in Television


Course examines a specific topic within the field of television, rotating the topics on a regular basis to keep the course relevant to trends and issues within television and society. Today more than ever, TV is the primary storyteller in U.S. culture, and therefore the medium raises a constant stream of issues concerning everything from representation of groups to how parents raise their children. Classes focus on providing students with in-depth examinations of TV-related topics, with an overarching emphasis on the importance of approaching television and related issues from a variety of humanistic perspectives (philosophical, industrial, historiographical, etc.) so as to enrich and complicate our understanding of both the issue and TV.
