HENG 344 A - Televison as Narrative Art
From the 1990s to the present, critics and scholars have noted a revolution in longform storytelling on television, both in drama and comedy. Groundbreaking and ambitious series such as The Sopranos, Seinfeld, Six Feet Under, Arrested Development, Deadwood, The Wire, 24, Lost, and Mad Men have irrevocably transformed the media landscape.
What many have termed a new "golden age" of television has emerged to challenge the traditional artistic dominance of cinema. We now find television, at its best, claiming the status of art and discovering in its narratives the richness of character and plotting once assumed to the be the domain of novels.
This course endeavors a scholarly appraisal of television, with special attention to how the medium not only emulates literary narrative, but is in fact transforming narrative as we know it.
Course enrollment is limited to Honors students. 3 credits
