Description - Teen TV: Genre, Consumption and Identity by Dr. Glyn Davis

Teen TV is the first anthology dedicated to a broad range of television programs produced for and watched by teenagers. With extensive coverage of shows such as "Dawson's Creek, Roswell, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, "and Australia's "Heartbreak High, "the book examines how these dramas construct and reaffirm distinct visions of youth. Addressing a number of provocative questions, the contributors ask: Is teen television a genre in its own right? What other narrative forms do these programs draw upon and why? How does teen TV interact with other entertainment industries, such as those of music and cinema? What position does teen TV hold within wider practices of consumption and identity inscription? The book offers a fascinating survey of the different forms teen TV takes and the many ways in which it is produced and consumed.
