Television: between continuities and transformations

  • Fernanda Mauricio Silva Universidade Federal da Bahia
Keywords: television, analysis of television products, representations, theoretical and methodological challenges


The changes in the television landscapes of Brazil and Portugal—the privatization of public channels, the formation of new genres, and the influence of digital technologies—are addressed in the anthology Estudos de televisão: diálogos Brasil-Portugal, edited by João Freire Filho and Gabriela Borges. The book is structured around the analysis of television programs of different genres and formats and modes of representation of the individual and the multitude, and the theoretical and methodological challenges posed for the analysis of this medium. By strengthening the dialogue between different authors, theoretical perspectives and television cultures, this book gives a good portrayal of the growth of research in the area of television and offers some guidelines for addressing the various forms and contents that make up contemporary television.
