SOC 012 PZ -Sociology of Television


Institution: Pitzer

Description: This course applies sociological, psychological, and feminist perspectives towards understanding how TV shows are produced and experienced in everyday life and within a broader social context. We will examine TV’s role in shaping understandings of, and relationship to, ourselves, other individuals, groups, institutions, and the world. Each week will analyze a different theme, like “buddies,” families, crime (BrBa, Sopranos, SOA), feminisms (Girls, SATC, Broad City, OITNB), and institutions (Office, BBT, Parks & Rec). Students will critically analyze the portrayals of various axes of identity and institutions, and explore the economic, political, and social implications of these depictions.
