[Commlist] Trans TV Dossier published in CST 15.3

Fri Oct 02 06:49:27 GMT 2020

It is with great pleasure that Michael Goddard and Christopher Hogg can announce that the second part of our third and final Trans TV special dossier has just been published in /Critical Studies in Television 15.3. /Emerging from the international Trans TV conference in 2017, this series of publications have sought to address contemporary transformations of television in the era of streaming, internet-distributed TV, However, rather than a strictly industrial, institutional or technological approach, we attempted to think these transformations as inseparable from a rise in queer, diverse and trans representations in televisual aesthetics and to try to discern the complex relations between the two.

Intended as an ongoing dialogue with contemporary television over the last few years, we are happy to have curated such wonderful work by gifted emergent and established TV scholars, approaching these issues from a rich diversity of perspectives.

The most recent issue is available here and includes the following contents: <>

‘Introduction: Trans TV dossier, III: Trans TV re-evaluated, part 2’, Edited and introduced by Michael Goddard, Christopher Hogg (open access)
