Race in American Television Shows
This work analyses eight scenes taken from contemporary TV series, selected for the unique way in which they present the issue of race and invite viewers to reflect on the subject. Scenes are treated as both 'socio-historical' documents where dialogue analysis is key, and as cinematic and aesthetic artefacts where images and the gaze are analysed thanks to the visual measures employed to depict a specific issue.
