    Abstract: "This book examines the phenomenon of prime time soap operas on Indian television. An anthropological insight into social issues and practices of contemporary India through the television, this volume analyses the production of soaps within India's cultural fabric. It deconstructs themes and issues surrounding the 'everyday', and the 'middle class', through the fiction of the 'popular'. In its second edition, this still remains the only book to examine prime time soap operas on Indian television. Without in any way changing the central arguments of the first edition, it adds an essential introductory chapter tracking the tectonic shifts in the Indian 'mediascape' over the past decade - including how the explosion of regional language channels, and an era of multiple screens have changed soap viewing forever. Meticulously researched and persuasively argued, the book traces how prime time soaps in India still grab the maximum eyeballs and remain the biggest earners for TV channels. The book will be of interest to students of anthropology and sociology, media and cultural studies, visual culture studies, gender and family studies, and also Asian studies in general. It is also an important resource for media producers, both in content production and television channels; as well as for the general reader"--

    Abstract: When American nation-wide network radio was still in its infancy, new programs such as Ma Perkins began to feature ongoing story lines in fifteen minute episodes focusing on home life and romance. Procter & Gamble and other soap companies were the most common sponsors, and soon the genre of soap opera had been christened. In this entertaining but probing inquiry into the nature, history, and significance of the soaps, anthropologist Dorothy Anger shows how they reflect and shape the ethos of particular nations. Anger's primary focus is on the similarities and contrasts between American soaps and British serials such as Coronation Street and EastEnders-soaps that look more like ordinary life than do their American couterparts, and that feature story-lines based on surviving on what you can earn rather than striving for more. Anger looks at the industry as well as the televised product and examines the social effects as well as the inherent characteristics of soaps-with particular emphasis placed on the ways in which their implicit messages reflect and reinforce the ethos of the society in which they are made. She examines how the soaps themselves are shaped in turn by the cultures and the place from which they come. Though far from uncritical of the genre, Anger herself loves the soaps. She recognizes how soap operas provide a "continuing renewal of the familiar." Through interviews with and observations of soap fans she shows that the sharing of information and opinion after the program is over is as important to the viewers as actually following the stories. Informed by recent work in anthropology and cultural theory, Other Worlds will easily be accessible to a general as well as an academic audience

    Abstract: Contemporary Television Series: Narrative Structures and Audience Perception proposes an interdisciplinary and multicultural approach of old concepts like fiction, reality and narrativity applied to actual worldwide television series. The authors that have contributed to this volume analyze the almost invisible barriers between fiction and reality in television series from different perspectives. The results of their studies are extremely interesting and revealing. The new perspectives offered by this volume will be of great interest to any scholar of European and international studies, because they bring to light new ideas, new methodologies and results that could be further developed. This volume allows readers to explore these unique insights, even if they are not senior researchers, and to easily digest the content, and also to acknowledge the impact of the viewing of television series on reality and on their own lives

    Abstract: Samantha Nogueira Joyce's Brazilian Telenovelas and the Myth of Racial Democracy traces the representations of Afro-Brazilians on television, culminating with the telenovela Duas Caras (2007-2008), and reveals how telenovelas contribute to social change in ways that have not been fully explored in previous scholarship. It also provides a comparative analysis between the representation of Blacks in Brazil and in the United States while it tracks the dynamic process through which Duas Caras worked to debunk the myth and ideology of racial democracy in Brazil

    Abstract: Drama! Excess! Men in bee suits! Often erroneously compared to soap operas of the United States, outside of the necessary and sometimes fantastical dramatic story arc, however, the telenovela differs greatly from U.S. soap operas and have regional and cultural distinctions throughout Latin America. In Telenovelas, Ilan Stavans has gathered over two-dozen essays covering the telenovela for readers to better understand the phenomenon and its myriad layers. Branching off from radionovelas, the telenovela was exported from pre-Castro Cuba during the 1950s. The essays found in Telenovelas covers a broad view of the genre, television's impact in Latino culture, as well as more in-depth discussions of specific telenovelas throughout the Spanish-speaking television audience in the North America. Also explored is how telenovelas depict stereotypes, respond to gender and class roles, and examines the differences in topic and thematic choices as well as production values unique to each country

    Abstract: TV-Serien rhythmisieren den Alltag der Zuschauer und versprechen Orientierung. Sie leisten dies nicht zuletzt, weil Zeitlichkeit ein konstitutives Moment ihrer Ästhetik ist. Wechselspiele von Stasis und Dynamik, Kontinuität und Unterbrechung, von Wiederholung und Variation sind zentrale Momente des Seriellen im Fernsehen. Der Band zeigt, wie gerade in einem Moment, in dem TV-Serien das Medium zu wechseln scheinen (Internet, DVD-Box), die Ästhetik serieller Zeitlichkeit einen ausgezeichneten Zugang zur Analyse von TV-Serien bietet. Dazu werden jüngere und jüngste US-amerikanische Serien wie The Simpsons, Northern Exposure und Babylon 5 sowie Lost, Heroes, Gilmore Girls, Dexter oder House M.D. genauso untersucht wie die Vorgeschichte im Serienroman oder die Forschung serieller Radioshows
