Television Studies After Tv. Television studies must now address a complex environment where change has been vigorous but uneven, and where local and national conditions vary significantly. Globalizing media industries, deregulatory policy regimes, the multiplication, convergence and trade in media formats, the emergence of new content production industries outside the US/UK umbrella, and the fragmentation of media audiences are all changing the nature of television today: its content, its industrial structure and how it is consumed. Television Studies after TV leads the way in developing new ways of understanding television in the post-broadcast era. With contributions from leading international scholars, it considers the full range of convergent media now implicated in understanding television, and also focuses on large non-Anglophone markets – such as Asia and Latin America — in order to accurately reflect the wide variety of structures, forms and content which now organise television around the world.

The Hollywood Curriculum. The second revised edition of The Hollywood Curriculum analyzes over 165 films distributed throughout the United States over the last 80 years to construct a theory of curriculum in the movies that is grounded in cultural studies and critical pedagogy. The portrayal of teachers in popular movies focuses on individual effort rather than collective action, and relies on stock characters and predictable plots, precluding meaningful struggle. Conformation to these conventions ensures the ultimate outcome of the screen narratives and almost always leaves the educational institution-which represents the larger status quo-intact and dominant. To interrogate the "Hollywood curriculum" is to ask what it means as a culture to be responsive to films at both social and personal levels, and to engage these films as both entertaining and potentially transforming. "The Hollywood Curriculum is a sophisticated and thoughtful look at the portrayal of teachers in film and television in an exceptionally accessible way. Dalton draws on some of the most relevant and exciting theory to evaluate teacher films and demonstrates a masterful insight into the worlds of education and film studies. This book is a must-read for those interested in exploring the intersection of teaching, curriculum, film/television, and society, and is an outstanding contribution to the literature."-Alan S. Marcus, Associate Professor of Curriculum and Instruction, University of Connecticut; Author of Celluloid Blackboard: Teaching History with Film and Teaching History with Film: Strategies for Secondary Social Studies
