TV21c Conf
Television and Television Studies in the 21st Century Conference

Television and Television Studies in the 21st Century is an academic conference being held September 26 - 28, 2013 at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. It will bring together established and emerging scholars from around the globe to discuss the future of television and television studies. All conference sessions will take place in North Quad (105 S. State St.).

Over two-and-a-half days, five problematics will be addressed that have been central to the development of “television studies” as an identifiable academic endeavor and that continue to drive television scholarship: Television’s Past, Present, and Future; Television and the Nation in an Era of Globalization; Television and Politics; Television, Text, and Identity; and finally, Digital Television.

Each problematic will be discussed by a panel featuring an invited keynote speaker followed by two invited respondents and a third we identified through an open call. Overall, our goal is to facilitate conversations about television and television studies among and between multiple generations of media scholars.

This conference was made possible by the generous support of the Department of Communication Studies at the University of Michigan.  For more information on its faculty and graduate student organizers, please visit the Contact page.

The logo for this website was produced by the students of the University of Michigan chapter of the AIGA (American Institute of Graphic Arts).
