This course examines various methodologies and theories through which scholars have engaged television over the past several decades.  We will consider TV through a variety of lenses: as a technology, as a cultural experience, as text, as ideology, and as industrial practice.  We will focus primarily on U.S. television, but we will also consider the medium’s global contexts at key junctures.  Our goal will be to consider not just television and its myriad forms but, first and foremost, the history of academic engagements with this popular medium.
