  • Symbolic Capital and the Production Discourse of The American Music Show:
           A Microhistory of Atlanta Cable Access
    • Abstract: In the early 1980s, Atlanta city councilman James Bond could often be found with his video camera and a homemade sticker for The American Music Show (People TV, 1981–2005), the local cable access show he hosted and produced. At political events, concerts, and sports arenas, Bond found celebrities in Atlanta who would, as requested but often untruthfully, proclaim to the camera, "I watch The American Music Show." James Brown encountered Bond at an Atlanta Hawks basketball game and said the tagline for Bond's camera. George H. W. Bush did the same after asking Bond, somewhat facetiously, if saying it on camera would get him in trouble.1George H. W. Bush's worry was a joke in the early 1980s but has become a serious ...

  • Love and Sex in the Age of Capitalist Realism: On Spike Jonze's Her
    • Abstract: What is Spike Jonze's film Her (2013) about' Is it concerned with the nefarious effects of technology, how we are infatuated with our gadgets, our devices, our Wi-Fi, and our technology' Or is it simply an old-fashioned love story, in which one of the lovers just happens to be a computer' These two possibilities suggest two ways we will discuss the film in this article, albeit in very specific critical paradigms derived from the psychoanalytic theories of Jacques Lacan and Slavoj Žižek: the infatuation, we argue, is a symptom of a kind of incommensurability, encapsulated in the Lacanian dictum that "there's no such thing as a sexual relation"; the love story, in turn, is a kind of fantasy, a necessary fantasy that ...

  • Star Testimonials and Trailers: Mobilizing during World War I
    • Abstract: In all likelihood, a typical moviegoer in late 1918 suffered along with the general population from Liberty Bond fatigue. Between April 1917, when the United States entered the Great War, and the Armistice of November 1918, the US government sponsored four national bond drives, each saturating local communities for approximately one month. Among myriad appeals to war mobilization, motion pictures and the spaces of exhibition were certainly important venues, although the relationship between the commercial film industry and the government propaganda campaign was not clearly settled during the first year of intervention. But by mid-October 1918, if a motion picture patron had been to a movie theater in New York City ... Read More

  • Evaluating Television: Affect as a Critical Optic
    • Abstract: Few people have ever seen or even heard of the television programs Normal, Ohio (Fox, 2000) and Some of My Best Friends (NBC, 2002). Both are sitcoms built around gay male protagonists that were canceled fewer than ten episodes after they premiered.1 Leading up to their cancellations, they received harsh criticism in trade publications and the popular press on both aesthetic and ideological grounds. In this essay, I resist chiming in with the critical chorus on the programs, and I refrain from claiming that they are somehow more noteworthy or interesting than they are. While both impulses are strong, I opt instead to examine the programs discursively to parse out the conceptual issues involved in evaluating ... Read More

  • Radio Remediated: Sissako's Life on Earth and Sembène's Moolaadé
    • Abstract: For the past forty years, scholars have referred to African news media and other new forms of communication, like the mobile phone, as "Africa's drums."1 Marshall McLuhan calls radio "the tribal drum" in Understanding Media.2 Pressing electrified media forms, whether analog or digital, into "traditional" molds for the imprimatur of African authenticity reveals what Ilana Gershon calls "media ideologies."3 Media ideologies are ideas and beliefs about the mediated communicative channels available to producers and receivers of information.4 Many people, both on and off the African continent, assume that radios, televisions, and film cameras are "foreign" technologies. This is one kind of media ideology at work. ... Read More

  • The New Old Face of a Genre: The Franchise Teen Film as Industry Strategy
    • Abstract: Films like The Breakfast Club (John Hughes, 1985) and American Pie (Paul Weitz, 1999), American Graffiti (George Lucas, 1973) and Halloween (John Carpenter, 1978), Heathers (Michael Lehmann, 1989) and Mean Girls (Mark Waters, 2004) are often the type that comes to mind when thinking about the teen film genre. The narratives usually revolve around the personal trials and tribulations of teenagers living mostly ordinary lives, with the occasional exceptional circumstance or, in the case of horror, supernatural situation, propelling the action. Allowing for a comprehensive analysis of the genre, definitions of the form often take an inclusive approach; that is, teen films can be considered those that feature teenage ... Read More

  • Introduction
    • Abstract: We set out on this In Focus section with the general intent of bringing together scholars working in contemporary youth media studies. This is our own background, as Louisa has written extensively on teen television shows and the youth fan cultures that surround them, and Tim has examined youth in American movies going back to early Hollywood.1 As we began considering established scholars in the field to solicit for contributions, we soon found evidence of the increasing attention to youth concerns beyond traditional film and television texts, as much recent scholarship has focused on children and young adults using and creating social media.This increased attention to youth digital cultures should not have been a ...

  • "Against a Sharp White Background": Toward Race-Based Intersectional
           Research in Youth Media Studies
    • Abstract: Acentury and a half after the Emancipation Proclamation, systemic racism continues to infect the United States of America and disrupt the project of democracy. While the effects of this malignancy are perhaps most visible in African Americans' unequal treatment in the criminal justice system, race-based inequity, oppression, and disenfranchisement appear throughout US society, including within academia and media culture. It is because of this pernicious problem that I advocate more attention to race and the greater adoption of the intersectional approach within youth media studies.White youth are not the only young people to appear in media, nor are they the only young people to consume and produce media. Yet ... Read More

  • Tumblr Youth Subcultures and Media Engagement
    • Abstract: The meme shown in Figure 1 is one of the most reblogged posts from the popular blog Savedbythe-bellhooks, which is largely devoted to juxtaposing stills from the popular US television teen program Saved by the Bell (NBC, 1989–1992) with the words of black feminist scholar bell hooks in order to create awareness of intersectionality.1 This is how a typical Tumblr post looks, with "notes" in the bottom left-hand corner indicating the number of "likes" and "reblogs" and several "tags" to identify the creator's or reblogger's intent. Savedbythe-bellhooks was created by white millennial Liz Laribee, a childhood fan of the show, to "do the work of an ally" by educating other white users of the site, and it exemplifies ... Read More

  • The Reelness: Queer Film Festivals and Youth Media Training
    • Abstract: In 1977, a group of young queer artists gathered one night in the San Francisco LGBT Community Center to screen their films for one another against a plain white bedsheet. Marc Huestis recalls how he proposed the screening after meeting several like-minded artists developing their films at Harvey Milk's Castro Camera shop. As an afterthought, the young directors made the screening public, calling it the Gay Film Festival of Super-8 Films.1What happened next is a bit of gay history: the evening sold out, with standing room only. More screenings were added and more artists introduced; that initially modest event would become the Frameline Film Festival (http://www.frameline.org), which now sprawls over a week and a ...

  • Youth Audiences and the Media in the Digital Era: The Intensification of
           Multimedia Engagement and Interaction
    • Abstract: Youth audiences in possession of disposable income, and the time and inclination to spend it, have long been a demographic valued by the media industries, both as the consumers of media content and as the "product" sold to advertisers.1 However, the generations born after 1995 into capitalist, technologically advanced, first-world environments—who have grown up with digital entertainment interfaces offering heightened opportunities for interaction, participation, and control over their preferred entertainment experiences—are abandoning traditional, industry-regulated forms of media consumption.2 These developments signal an era of upheaval for legacy media, which are being forced to grapple with rapidly evolving ...

  • Streaming British Youth Television: Online BBC Three as a Transitional
           Moment
    • Abstract: In the summer of 2016, two UK lectures by high-profile television executives highlighted television's ongoing struggle to engage with youth audiences. Shane Smith—CEO of the US-based multiplatform media company Vice Media—gave a contentious MacTaggart Lecture to the assembled British media industry at the 2016 Edinburgh International Television Festival. In it, he charged that linear television was neglecting "the interests and needs of the world's youth."1 These comments echoed those of former BBC television executive Liz Warner, who had argued that television was failing young audiences in a BAFTA lecture the previous week. Warner claimed that British television was "getting boring, old and boring" and needed to ... Read More

  • Mediated Youth Cultures: The Internet, Belonging and New Cultural
           Configurations eds. by Andy Bennett and Brady Robards (review)
    • Abstract: In 2015, danah boyd authored an ethno-graphically oriented book on teens and social media, a timely and relevant contribution to examinations of youth culture in the twenty-first century.1 One of her key conclusions is that "fears that surround teens' use of social media overlook … [teens'] fundamental desire for social connection."2 While often focusing on youth past their teen years, this same tenet nevertheless lies at the heart of the 2014 anthology Mediated Youth Cultures: The Internet, Belonging and New Cultural Configurations, edited by Andy Bennett and Brady Robards, both of whom have contributed work in the domain of youth studies as well.3 Ostensibly about the Internet, per its title, the anthology's key ...

  • Abstinence Cinema: Virginity and the Rhetoric of Sexual Purity in
           Contemporary Film by Casey Ryan Kelly (review)
    • Abstract: Casey Ryan Kelly's Abstinence Cinema: Virginity and the Rhetoric of Sexual Purity in Contemporary Film explores the proliferation of youth-oriented plots about abstinence in contemporary cinema, arguing that such films make up a broader popular media phenomenon that reflects cultural anxieties about the legacies of feminism and sexual liberation.The case studies analyzed in each chapter cover "abstinence cinema," what Kelly defines as an "emerging constellation of disparate film texts from 2000 to the present that collectively articulate circumscribed meanings of sexuality, gender, and family within the symbolic and discursive repertoire of the abstinence movement."1 Kelly argues that different facets of ...

  • Muslim Cool: Race, Religion, and Hip Hop in the United States by Su'ad
           Abdul Khabeer: Affect as a Critical Optic (review)
    • Abstract: Halfway through anthropologist Su'ad Abdul Khabeer's Muslim Cool, the author tells a first-person story of going to a "girl party" in a Chicago suburb. This is a house party exclusively for Muslim women and girls at which they can "let their hair out (or down), literally and figuratively, in an all-female environment," socialize, and dance.1 As she and her friend get into the groove and belly dance, she slowly realizes that their hostess, a Palestinian Muslim immigrant mother, and the other girls, all Palestinian American Muslims, have stopped dancing and are simply gazing at her and her friend, fascinated by "the 'spectacle' of the two dancing (Black) girls."2Khabeer, troubled by this sudden atmospheric shift in ...

  • MTV and Teen Pregnancy: Critical Essays on 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom
           ed. by Letizia Guglielmo (review)
    • Abstract: Teen television programs have long been sites to mediate narratives of becoming. Their young protagonists grapple with issues of gender, race, class, and community as they transition into adulthood. One of teen-centered programming's enduring narrative tropes has been the unplanned pregnancy. A long-standing societal issue, unplanned pregnancy is overwhelmingly used on teen television programs as a plot device to explore the consequences of sex, with the goal of containing sexuality by the end of the episode. Teen pregnancy permeated popular culture in 2008 with Juno (Jason Reitman, 2007) in theaters, The Secret Life of the American Teenager (ABC Family, 2008–2013) on television, and the very public pregnancies of ...

  • Queer Girls, Temporality and Screen Media: Not "Just a Phase" by Whitney
           Monaghan (review)
    • Abstract: Queer Girls, Temporality and Screen Media: Not "Just a Phase" makes a landmark interdisciplinary contribution to studies of both queer screen media and youth culture, encouraging readers to consider the conceptual and practical implications of simultaneously queering girls' studies and "girling" queer studies. The book deftly balances its theoretical intervention with the careful textual analysis of a range of global representations from cinema, television, and digital media. Its ultimate achievement is to show how girlhood has been reframed across a range of texts in a way that opens up the potential for a queer futurity and sustaining happiness.Monaghan's book takes as its premise the growing prominence of queer ...
