Television is a key apparatus of popular culture and one of the most employed media of the Australian public sphere, contributing greatly to the repertoire of cultural meanings and practices of everyday life. Television informs, entertains, reflects and reinforces notions of who we are, what our culture means and how we relate to others. Television feeds into almost all aspects of Australian society including commerce, politics, economics and identity. This course surveys the cultural functions, institutional structures and industry approaches associated with Australian television.
