The rapid expansion in media and communication courses reflects the "coming of age" of television studies. This text analyzes how the study of television has developed and points to new approaches dealing with rapidly-changing technologies and formats. Chapters on the history and methods of studying television reflect on such issues as the impact of feminism and the development of ethnographic research while, specific case studies on topics such as US "people shows", Brazilian telenovelas and the varied use of video in the home give pointed accounts of current practice.
