Global TV

Fall 2021

Taught By: Lauhona Ganguly

Section: A

CRN: 3964

Credits: 3

This course introduces students to global television, focusing on both the theories of transnational television as well as the emerging trends and practices that are reshaping the production, distribution and reception of television around the world. The course is organized in three sections exploring, first, the major theoretical works on television’s globalization; second, specific case studies of television industries and cultures from around the world; and third, thematic debates in global television studies that identify points of connection and disconnection in transnational television. Throughout we will rely on empirical evidences (using television clips, industry press reports, cultural blogs etcetera) to understand how the television medium is changing and how television’s globalization is an important force in shaping television’s evolving landscape. Students are expected to develop an independent research project on global TV with the choice to either present their research in the form of an academic essay or in a creative format, such as short film/documentary/web archives, etcetera.

Media Studies courses are open to all graduate students. Undergraduate Juniors and Seniors with permission from the instructor and BA/MA Media studies students should email mediastudiesadvising@newschool.edu for access.
Please note for the Fall 2021 semester, this course is running online asynchronously.
