It’s no secret that television has changed significantly since we first chose a name for Television: Critical Methods and Applications back in 1994. That title has served us well for over two decades, but we’ve decided a new subtitle might better reflect the book’s content—especially since we have a new chapter contributed by Amanda Lotz on TV in the post-network era.
So we bandied a few ideas about and came up with:
Television: Visual Storytelling and Screen Culture
The new edition still accounts for TV’s functioning in the network era, but we also go deeper into new forms of visual storytelling and screen culture in an age in which screens have proliferated.
Let us know what you think of the new title!
