This issue's columns in brief:
"The Anachronism of Television Subsription Packages" by John W. Jordan:
If television viewers are not able to use that medium to gain access to the
content they want when they want it, then the medium itself can only continue
to make itself an increasingly irrelevant part of that viewer's media
"Therapy is Complicated: HBO's Foray into Modular Storytelling with In
Treatment" by Tasha Oren:
Based on a hit Israeli TV show, HBO's In Treatment, about a therapist and his
patients, invites viewers to mix and match their own viewing schedules.
"Is it Religion or is it Entertainment?" by Mara Einstein:
An exploration of the blur between the sacred and the secular in current media.
"Revisitation and Constant Auditions: The Politics of Placing People" by Anna
How do we reward and protect creative labor while we insist on stripping it from
the bodies that produce it?
"Where Babies Really Come From ..." by Tim Havens:
A Baby Story, it would seem, has become a present-day ritual for at least some
segments of the expectant-parent population in the U.S.
"On the Relevancy of Radio" by Kathleen Battles:
Despite its influence, radio often remains marginal to media studies.
We look forward to your visit and encourage your comments.
