The "Scholar's Anthology": Televisual Studies.
Gronbeck, Bruce E., Ed.
The Central States Speech Journal, v34 n3 Fall 1983
The five major articles in this journal issue focus on television criticism as an academic field. An introduction, entitled "The 'Scholar's Anthology': Televisual Studies" (Bruce Gronbeck), is followed by articles discussing the following topics: (1) the discourses of television quiz programs (John Fiske), (2) the dialectic of feminine power in the television serial "Dynasty" (Cathy Schwichtenberg), (3) metaphoric structures in political news stories (Dennis K. Mumby and Carole Spitzack), (4) Robert Schuller and American civil religion (Martha Solomon), and (5) the assassination of John Lennon and the advisory function of eulogies (Karen A. Foss). Two additional articles (one by Barbara S. Morris and Joel Nydahl, and the other by Douglas A. Boyd) discuss production elements of live television broadcasts and the United States government's reaction to "pirate" radio. (HTH)
