Thinking Television tells the story of an innovative media literacy project focused on the creation of media programming that "makes money" and "makes a difference". Woven around critiques of student-produced concepts for "television that thinks", this book offers new directions for critical media literacy, popular culture studies and the interdisciplinary concerns of cultural studies.
