COMM 347 - THE NEW TV CRITICISM
New Television Criticism exposes students to the critical approaches used to discuss, evaluate, and critically write about television programs, with a focus on such approaches as representational analysis, genre theory, media criticism, Postmodernist critique, and audience-oriented criticism. This course will address the emergence of television studies in academia and its practical applications within television professions. Our discussion includes program changes ranging from network obsessions with "reality" TV to cable programs that broadcast innovative television documentaries and dramas. Strong emphasis will also be placed on the inner workings of the television industry, growing media consolidation, and the positive and negative effects that globalization has had on international programming and audiences. The coursework includes intensive classroom discussions, weekly readings, quizzes, and academic research paper writing.
