Emotion shapes how political issues and individuals are represented and perceived in documentary and it is crucial to how we engage with the vicissitudes of the public sphere. In the past documentary has been popularly perceived in ways that align it with education, science, history and the rational realm. This frame has never been adequate for understanding the broad array of styles and themes that can be seen in the documentary genre. Focusing on the question of subjectivity, Smail analyses various different kinds of individuals that can be found in documentaries, such as the female porn star, the politically disenfranchised, children, and the documentary auteur. She envisages an interdisciplinary approach to documentary drawing on scholarship from not only film studies, but also gender studies, queer theory, cultural theories of affect, critical race studies, political theory and pyschoanalysis.

Family television : cultural power and domestic leisure / by David Morley, with an introduction by Stuart Hall

UK; FAMILY AND TV Summary: "In this detailed study of television viewing among families from different cultural backgrounds, David Morley develops many of the themes of his earlier work on 'The Nationwide Audience' . This book extends that work into new territory, examining the different ways in which television is actually watched within the context of family life. Here television viewing is situated firmly within the politics of the living room and the structure of power relations within the family. This book looks at: who watches which types of television programmes with what kinds of attention - and why, who gets to choose which programmes the family will watch - and whose hand is on the automatic channel control device , who watches in silence - and who talks about what they watch to whom, how television fits in with domestic work, childcare and leisure interestes. Drawing on new work in the fields of Family Therapy and Social work, as well as the established traditions of media and communications studies, this book offers a new model for understanding television as a domestic medium. The analysis offered here, as to how television viewing is inextricably bound up with the complexities of family life, has radical implications for broadcasters, advertisers, students and teachers of the media understand their work - and for everyone concerned with the lpace of television in the home.

By emphasizing volume control, channel shifting, and multi-function management, they tell a story about our experience of mass media, culture, and domestic life. Remote controls reveal the deep impact electronics design has on our self-perception and world-view. This book offers lively analyses of the remote control's material, literary, and cultural history to explain how such an innocuous media accessory can change the way we occupy our houses, interact with our families, and experience the world. From the first wired radio remotes of the 1920s to infrared universal remotes, from the homemade TV controllers to the Apple Remote, remote controls shape our media devices and how we live with them"-- Notes: Formerly CIP.

Video cassette revolution : The VCR in Australia / Michael Nugent
Sydney, N.S.W.: Macquarie University, 2014.
Call No: 410.82 NUG Author: Nugent, Michael CorpAuthor: Macquarie University Source: AT Place: Sydney, N.S.W. Publisher: Macquarie University PubDate: 2014 PhysDes: 59 pages ; 30 cm Subject: VIDEO RECORDERS; VIDEO, FILMS ON. AUSTRALIA; VIEWERS. AUSTRALIA; HOME EXHIBITION. AUSTRALIA; HOME EQUIPMENT; HOME VIDEO. AUSTRALIA Summary: "This thesis is to serve as a history of the Video Cassette Recorder (VCR) in Australia. It has been done because while there are numerous histories relating to other aspects of Australian media, the history of the VCR itself remains little more than an aspect of narratives focused on other phenomena. This was done through extensive examination of discursive sources, such as popular magazines, newspapers and trade journals. By reading these publications over the course of several years, I have been able to identify several trends unfolding over time, noting how popular conceptions of the technology have changed. By comparing these with work done on the history of home video in other countries, it allows for a greater understanding of what is unique to Australia’s history with the VCR. Perhaps the most significant finding is that the idea of what a VCR can offer is perpetually changing. What began as a simple means to record and playback programmes from television broadcasts quickly became a key part of commercial film distribution fundamentally altered the way in which people experience their television sets. As such, a struggle for position by producers, distributors and consumers erupted, as it irrevocably changed media in Australia."
