Like most people I know, I’m sad, angry, and numb in reaction to the massacre of children and their teachers on Friday.

For anyone keeping track, this blog’s hiatus is a sad signal that it’s been a busy couple of months for me re-entering to real life in Vermont, what with teaching, chairing my department, taking care of lots of personal projects, and obsessing over the election. (And thankfully, Super Storm Sandy had little personal impact on […]


The semester launched this week at Middlebury. Due to a little enrollment shuffling, I’m only teaching one course this semester: Television and American Culture. (I’ll certainly be sufficiently busy reading the hundreds of job applicants and actively working on the college website makeover project!)

Alas it may not be out in time for spring courses, unless it will only be […]


Update: The book will be out soon – details on the Television & American Culture website. As I’ve blogged before,  I’m in the process of writing a textbook called Television & American Culture. I’m close to being done, although I’ve been a bit stalled with other obligations. This January I’m putting my final push in […]


Update: The book will be out soon – details on the Television & American Culture website. I just realized it’s been over a week of blog silence. The semester approaches, summer is waning, and I’ve been uninspired to write in a bloggy fashion. So I’ll share what I have been writing – continual work on […]

Update: The book will be out soon – details on the Television & American Culture website. In my continuing series of excerpting my textbook-in-progress, Television & American Culture, here’s a section I’ve been working on from the final chapter, Television as Technological Medium. The chapter as a whole outlines how we view TV as a […]


Update: The book will be out soon – details on the Television & American Culture website.
