Reviews

“I have engaged intensively in the study of television series but my main interest is with reception studies and the related empirical research. Having said that, I find media studies’ way of grounding theoretical development in contemporary popular culture very compelling. It is a persuasive way of adapting Haraway’s claim that all knowledge is historically contingent rather than universal … . And Emotions in Contemporary TV Series does exactly that. Thus, it is very instructive for scholars and aficionados alike.” (Daniela Schlütz, Projections, Vol. 15 (1), 2021)
