Television as we knew it is irrevocably changing. Some are
gleefully announcing the death of television, others have been less
sanguine but insist that television is radically changing
underneath our eyes. Several excellent publications have dealt with
television's uncertain condition, but few have taken the specific
question of what television's transformations mean for the
discipline of Television Studies as a starting point. The essays
collected in this volume aim to fill this void. Two fundamental
questions string the various contributions together. First, is
television really in crisis or is the present not so extraordinary
when revisiting television's development? Second, should we invent
new theoretical concepts or are our old ones still perfectly
relevant? To answer such questions the authors in this volume take
up diverse case studies, ranging from the academic series Reading
Contemporary Television to Flemish Fiction, from nostalgic
programming on broadcast television to YouTube, from tell-sell
television shows to public television art in the 1980s. This title
