WRIT 114.004 | The World According to Television
Cathy Rex | Spring 2014 | MW 10:00-11:50 AM & F 11:00-11:50 AM
In this particular course, we will investigate various issues about American television. We will consider the social and cultural impact of issues such as race, class, gender, ethnicity, and sexual orientation and how venues such as sitcoms, commercials, news programs, and niche networks deal with them. Does the American television really embrace diversity or are there lingering issues of bias underpinning t.v. programming?
