New Undergraduate Course Supplement 2022

FILM 2 Introduction to Television

This course will provide an introduction to television as a form of communication grounded in earlier electronic media such as telephone and radio and looking forward to the internet, its representative stylistic conventions and genres (daytime drama, news, sports, "reality" shows, sitcoms, etc), and the way the medium constructs audiences (e.g., as age, race and gender consumer demographics). Through an exploration of concepts such as "liveness," segmentation and "flow", and broadcasting, the class will also examine how television structures time and space.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
