Television and Sociocultural Change

Television and Sociocultural Change

The PhD-project examines the development of television and the development of the public debate about television. The starting point is the observation that a continuous shift of taboo boundaries in entertainment shows on television has taken place in the past years – presenting intimate affairs is becoming increasingly a matter of course. It is likely that such a development was not possible without a certain amount of public approval.

Project Description

With the historical reconstruction of debates in print media that followed controversial entertainment shows by applying a discourse analysis, this project documents how this development was dealt with in public. The objective is to identify how public opinion on social norms and the role of television has shifted parallel to the change of television services.
