21st Century Television As Art

This course explores the "New Golden Age" of TV that arguably began with The Sopranos and which may, perhaps, be considered "art." Students will weigh relevant social and technological changes, study debates over subjectivity, taste, and cultural hierarchies, and assess what might distinguish these new shows from TV of old.  Satisfies GE Area C1 (Fine Arts, Theatre, Dance, Music, and Film).
