  • Television studies is an academic discipline that deals with critical approaches to television. Usually, it is distinguished from mass-communication research, which tends to approach the topic from an empirical perspective. Defining the field is problematic; some institutions and syllabuses do not distinguish it from media studies or classify it as a subfield of popular culture studies. Television studies is roughly equivalent to the longer-standing discipline of film studies in that it is often concerned with textual analysis. For example, analyses of quality television, such as Cathy Come Home and Twin Peaks, have attracted the interests of researchers for their cinematic qualities. However, television studies can also incorporate the study of television viewing and how audiences make meaning from texts, which is commonly known as audience theory or reception theory. (en)

Het wordt gerekend tot de academische stroming letteren en de bredere stroming geesteswetenschappen en is een onderdeel van mediastudies. Deze wetenschappelijke discipline wordt ook wel Film- en televisiewetenschap of Media en cultuur genoemd. Deze discipline moet niet verward worden met communicatiewetenschap, die de menselijke communicatie en de effecten van media bestudeert. (nl)
