HOME ON THE TUBE: The Family in the American Sitcom
Linda Robinson, Communication Department
From its inception, American TV not only entered the American living room but reflected it back again in programs, particularly situation comedies, about American families. The American sitcom began by presenting us images of the “ideal” family and, by implication, what TV leads us to believe the American family should or may be.
This lecture is a brief survey of how the American sitcom has constructed and presented to us the American family, from television’s early days through today.
Tuesday, March 1 from 6:30-7:00 pm
