401 |Murray, Susan |MW 2-3:30pm |FBH 419

This course will survey American broadcasting from the wireless through digital television. We will examine how historically specific economic and political forces, regulation, technological innovation, advertisers, creative producers, and audiences have interacted to shape the development of commercial broadcasting and how these cultural products, narratives and processes have become part of our social history. Students are expected to view screenings both on reserve and online.
