“Watching Television Series, Writing Criticism”

Wednesday, April 18, 2018 - 9:15am
Aniki / ed. Sérgio Dias Branco and Elliott Logan
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 30, 2018  This thematic dossier focuses on the critical appreciation of particular television series, while also examining the distinctive practice of writing television criticism. Our understanding of television criticism echoes that of Alex Clayton and Andrew Klevan in their edited volume The Language and Style of Film Criticism (Routledge, 2011). It is a form of writing that addresses television series “as potential achievements and wishes to convey their distinctiveness and quality (or lack of it)” (Clayton and Klevan 1).

Edited Collection on the Hallmark Channel and its programming

Contributions are sought for an interdisciplinary collection of essays on the Hallmark television channels to be published by McFarland & Co. We are interested in a sustained exploration of the television channel and brand as a cultural phenomenon. At the end of 2017, The Washington Postpublished an article entitled “We can’t take any more of 2017, so we’ve turned to the Hallmark Channel in desperation.” The article described men and women – but mostly women – engaging in a particular brand of escapism from the seemingly daily barrage of bad news: watching Hallmark Channel original movies.
