Collaborative Ethnnographic Research and Television Audiences

Last week I interviewed my father about his memories of television when he was growing up. Reading and reflecting  upon the interviews the rest of the BCM240 cohort did, there were a number of reoccurring themes: change in the family dynamic (the television became the center of the household in which the family would gather around toward), greater awareness of the wider world (significant events from around the world were broadcast into people’s homes, such as the moon landing, and didn’t have to wait to read about it in the newspaper the next day) and new technologies (the introduction of television and other digital devices). 553 more words
