Flow TV

Flow TV Television in the age of media convergence. Edited by Michael Kackman et altri. (Routledge, 2011). From viral videos on YouTube to mobile television on cell phones and beyond, Flow TV examines television in an age of technological, economic, and cultural convergence. Seeking to frame a new set of concerns for television studies in the 21st century, this collection of all new essays establishes television’s continued importance in a shifting media culture. The collection examines television through a range of critical approaches from formal and industrial analysis to critical technology studies, reception studies, political economy, and critiques of television’s transnational flows. This volume stems from the popular online journal Flow: A Critical Forum on Television and Media Culture (www.flowtv.org)
