Seminar: Watching "Date My Family" with a side serving of Twitter: Analysing South African television through social media

18 Oct 2018 - 16:45

 

Join us on Tuesday 23 October 2018 at 13H00 in AC Jordan 4A for a seminar by CFMS "Watching Date My Family with a side serving of Twitter: Analysing South African television through social media"

Abstract: The proposed paper explores how Twitter is used alongside television in South Africa, to connect the audiences of reality television shows. The growth of the mobile internet and social media in South Africa has led to the rise of Twitter as a space in which the audiences of television shows participate in a communal viewing experience. Twitter provides a new channel for conversations about TV content, creating a ‘second screen’ for TV.

This #CFMS Research seminar will be presented by Tanja Bosh & Alexia Smit.

Snacks will be served from 12H30 in the CFMS Staff Room, AC Jordan 205
