Reality Television, Affect and Intimacy by Misha Kavka

Book Description

Reality Television, Affect and Intimacy explains the appeal of reality television in terms of the affective power of the mediated image. In place of common objections that reality TV is 'not real', Misha Kavka argues that the feelings of intimacy engendered by unscripted drama are both real and socially informative.

Books By Author Misha Kavka

Reality TV by Misha Kavka Reality TV, Paperback (February 2012)

This book is a study of the 'Reality TV' format which, in less than a decade, has transformed network programming schedules, branded satellite and digital stations, become a favourite target for anti-television campaigners, and turned viewers into savvy readers of (and participants in) the mechanics of television production.

Feminist Consequences by Misha Kavka Feminist Consequences, Paperback (January 2001)

Exploring the status of feminism in this "postfeminist" age, this work on feminist thinking aims to move away from the all too common dependence on French theorists and male thinkers and instead builds on feminist theory written by women. These writings address the question "Where are we going?" as well as "Where have we come from?"
