ENG 888

Televisual Texts and Contexts

Love it or hate it, television stands alone as a medium in its ability to influence the way we live and view the world. What is it about the immediacy of television that invites us to engage with it? Students will draw from literary studies, sociology, and anthropology to explore how the "flow" of television structures our time and our relations to one another, and how the "televisual" evolves as new communications technologies develop.
