Television Studies Scholarly Interest Group (Founded 2000)
Share |

The mission of the Television Studies Scholarly Interest Group (SIG) is to promote and advance work in the fields of Television and New Media Studies, to provide a means for those engaged in the fields to converse and collaborate with one another, and to support collaborative scholarship between our members and the Society for Cinema and Media Studies membership at large.

Members of this SIG come from many disciplines and a variety of departments, but we are drawn together via our passions about and research concerning television and new media (internet, mobile, digital applications in general). Some of us engage in fan studies, some of us are invested in archiving, others in policy and still others in technology…In today’s increasingly multi-mediated world, any number of topics and issues concern our SIG’s members. We are professors, adjunct faculty, grad students, independent scholars, and creative professionals seeking to better understand the role of TV and new media in our lives.


We invite you to become involved!
