Introduction to basic television history, theory and analysis. An historical overview of television from its invention to the present.
David Jenemann ()
Dates: May 19 - June 13, 2014
Television is a complex cultural form. At once an electronic medium and an institution, TV marks a terrain in which subjectivity, technology, power, and aesthetics are persistently reconfigured. While the history of television programming is well-known and documented, the history of the institution of television itself is less widely considered. FTS 9 attempts to examine the development of television both as an aesthetic medium and as an industry, and in so doing, to understand how television transforms modern culture. Using primary sources, contemporary criticism, and analyses of certain programs, we will learn how television works, who it works on, and who benefits. Since television touches on so many aspects of contemporary existence, the history of television is also necessarily a history of the last 100 years.
