NEW COURSE: ‘On Television’
In this course, we will take up television (specifically, North American television) as an object of investigation and a subject for criticism. Our method will be to approach television by watching it, by reading critical and historical writing about it, and by taking the perspectives of print fiction, graphic novels, and film. We will try to understand why television is so provocative, why it has been so difficult to understand, and how we may develop tools and techniques to approach it critically.
