VIRTUAL – Special Session: Thinking Through Television in a Pandemic

May 27, 2020 @ 12:15 pm - 1:30 pm  |  


In this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, more and more people are tuning into television (across streaming platforms, web series, and of course also pay, cable, and network TV) for news and information, comfort and company, narrative pleasure and imaginative stimulation—though also often getting misinformation, alienation, or discouragement.  How is TV working, producing ways of seeing, knowing, living, and feeling during this pandemic, and what are the implications of that?  How are we thinking through television in these unthinkable times? Lynne Joyrich will take up these questions with some opening remarks, then open up to a group discussion.
