New RKO Essay
I've let the blog lapse lately. More will be coming this summer, but right now I'm teaching and facing a writing deadline, so it may be a little while longer before the posts return.
In the meantime, I wanted to let anyone interested know that I have an essay out in a new book, Convergence Media History, edited by Janet Staiger and Sabine Hake (Routledge site). The book compiles media-history case studies (in film, TV, or other media) that tease out broader methodological implications for media research today. My essay, "When Pierre Bourdieu Meets the Political Economists," looks at the RKO problem-film unit.
