Book Description

2 Sep 2014
Critical Reflections on Audience and Narrativity offers an interdisciplinary and multicultural approach to fiction, reality, and narrativity applied to television series from all over the world. Dissecting the almost invisible barrier between fiction and reality in TV series from various perspectives, the chapters cover a wide range of contemporary classics from the post-network age. From "The X-Files" and "Desperate Housewives" to "The Wire" and "Breaking Bad", the chapters sketch TV series' development from the lowest form of mass entertainment to the sophisticated vehicle of highbrow intertextuality on a global scale.Also covering many international cases from Brazil, Serbia, Romania, and Turkey and locating them in the global web of puzzle narratives, the unique contributions draw connections between the most diverse audiences and the way they receive modern storytelling in a culturally globalized world. This timely volume is a great resource for anyone interested in contemporary mass culture.

Product Description


The new perspectives offered by this volume are of great interest for any European and International scholar mainly because the volume brings to light new ideas, new methodologies and results that could be further developed. Furthermore it is outstanding that the contributors to this book come from different countries (UK, Germany, Turkey, Bulgaria, Romania) and somehow reach a common language in their studies. -- Michael Higgins, University of Strathclyde, UK The book is divided into 14 chapters that bring a new perspective on the study of television series. This allows readers to drill in, even if they are not senior researchers, to easily digest the content and also to acknowledge the impact of television series viewing on reality and on their own lives. -- Stamatis Poulakidakos, University of Athens, Greece
