CFP: Critical Studies in Television Biennial Conference
26-28 August 2020
Edge Hill University
Where to, Television Studies? What directions are there to investigate?
What are the themes that are important as the medium morphs and changes?
What methodological challenges do these changes pose to Television
Studies and what place does television history continue to hold within
This conference will be a space where we can come together to set the
agenda for television research and education. We therefore invite papers
from all disciplines that engage with television and want to contribute
to Television Studies as a field. We are particularly interested in
papers that offer analyses of the field(s) or methods and ask questions
about what research Television Studies should conduct and how we want to
teach the subject. We thus invite papers that engage with any of the
following or indeed other fields:
* Television as texts
* Television industries
* Television institutions
* Television histories
* Television audiences
* Television as a cultural form
* Television and convergence
* Television and identities
* Television business
* Television and its relation to the national, local and/or global
* Methodologies in Television Studies
* Teaching television
* Theoretical approaches to television
Two round-tables will provide insights into new directions of television
research and questions of disciplinarity and television research. In
addition, our keynote will examine television, its relation to
technology and traditional understandings of the medium.
