POTR 4260 (Cross-listed with MDST 4559) – Brazilian Media with Eli Carter

TuTh 2:00-3:15PM New CAB 291

The objective of this course is to examine the development of Brazilian television from its origins in 1950 to modern-day broadcast television, Pay TV, and Internet programming.  To this end, the course will focus on key policies and players—networks, screenwriters, directors, and independent production companies—formats, different modes of production, and financing mechanisms.  Much of the discussion and analysis will revolve around a selection of contemporary works that, in contrast to the traditionally dominant telenovela, have emerged as a result of Brazilian television’s slow transition out of the network era and into one characterized by an increase in viewing options.
