Since 2013 the Department has been regularly participating in the writing of blogs for Critical Studies in Television Online (http://cstonline.tv) as a means of foregrounding work on television by both staff and doctoral researchers at UEA. And the line-up of pieces so far this year has been varied, thought-provoking and topical. We thought we’d gather these here for people to have a chance to take a look again at these great blogs.
Kicking us off for 2015, Brett Mills asked whether we should consider film studies as a sub-discipline of television studies. In March, PhD candidate Julia Havas considered television as the place where patriarchy and grown-up cinema goes to die.
As part of CST online’s Easter Weekend blog bonanza, doctoral researcher Michael Lovelock discussed Channel 4’s Cucumber as ‘post-gay’ television. And in the most recent contribution, another doctoral student, Mark Fryers, pondered the haunted British seascape in British television.
We are delighted to have made the blog contributions we have to CST Online, and have future blogs to come from Sanna Inthorn and Ben Lamb – so keep an eye out for those!
